Bray Crafters - The Threads That Bind Us, Exhibition - Signal Arts Centre - April 11th to 24th 2016

Bray Crafters Mixed Media Art and Craft Exhibition -
The Threads that Bind Us

Members of Bray Crafters group are taking part in a joint exhibition,
showcasing pieces of their work created over the last year.  Bray Crafters
is a community based arts and crafts group, who meet once a month to share
ideas and teach each other new skills in a sociable and encouraging
environment.  “The Threads That Bind Us” will be their first joint
exhibition and they are delighted to present it at Signal Arts Centre in
Bray, Co Wicklow. Their pieces reflect the ethos of their group
celebrating the connections through history, the passing on of knowledge
and skills through time and the deep friendships that have evolved from
this sharing.  The exhibit will display a wide variety of examples of
feltmaking, creative machine and hand embroidery, wire work,
silversmithing, fabric art, weaving, crochet, quilting, pottery, stained
glass, photography and painting.

This exhibition takes place in the Signal Arts Centre, 1 Albert Avenue,
Bray from Monday 11th April until Sunday 24th April. Opening reception
will take place on Sunday 17th April at 3pm. All are welcome.

When Bray Crafters began in 2014, the members never dreamed that the union
of so many creative women with such a broad range of artistic backgrounds
and experiences could generate such a unique and inspired exhibition. The
excitement is palpable and the collective can’t wait to see all of these
pieces– the combination of mediums, displayed in one space.

Visit the Bray Crafters - The Threads That Bind Us - at Signal Arts Centre
and get inspired from April 11 through April 24, 2016.   Opening reception
will take place on Sunday 17th April at 3pm

Craft Market - Airfield Farm, Dundrum, Dublin - 1st and 2nd May 2016

craft market at Airfield Farm in Dundrum as part of our Woolapalooza Farm Festival on the 1st and 2nd of May.

The event is open to the public at 9.30am with last admission and 4pm and will run to 5pm. There is no fee to have a stall at the market.

The craft market will take place in our Green Barn by the farmyard and will run all day. A live Trad band and dancing will also take place at various times throughout the day in the space.

 

We can supply a 6ft trestle table and chair for you to display your wares but we cannot supply access to an  electrical socket. I am afraid we cannot provide any bigger space than this.

All suppliers will need to be in place for 9.30am with access to the barn from 8.30am.

Access will be via the bottom of the visitor car park along our spine road to the barn.

All suppliers must return their cars to the visitor car park my 9.15.

Items may be left in the barn overnight on the Sunday for the Monday but this is at the risk of the stall holder. Doors will be closed but cannot be locked
