‘TIME’ Showcase Exhibition

James O'Neill Building (formerly ‘The Old Mill’) , Kinsale August 5th-14th, 10am - 6pm daily

MIXED CRAFTS

The Kinsale Craft Month exhibition showcases the quality and diversity of craft in Cork City and County. Now in its sixth year, it has established itself as a highlight of Cork Craft Month and Cork's creative calendar, promoting both established and emerging makers.

This exhibition focuses on the time it takes each artist to learn and to realize their work. Everything takes time and effort, whether throwing a bowl or learning tosew.​. Without time and effort technique wouldn’t exist.  How that time and effort combines and how it is realised, is peculiar to ​each individual.
