TASTE FOR CRAFT: The CHOCOLATE SHOP AND TONY FARRELL
In a first for Cork Craft Month, Cork Craft and Design Members and The English Market Traders are to collaborate on the synchronicities between both Craft Industries. This Collaborative Event will take place across the social media platforms of both Maker and Trader.
The first collaboration will feature The Chocolate Shop and Tony Farrell, Woodturner. The Chocolate Shop is a small family business who are simply passionate about chocolate. Established in 2000, they stock the largest range of the world’s finest chocolate under one roof in Ireland and source only the best quality chocolate from the best artisan chocolatiers throughout the world. Tony Farrell is a Woodturner based in Ballinora. He makes bowls, plates, multi-purpose boards from kitchen worktop off-cuts, cake stands and other wooden objects. Each piece is made from Irish grown woods, which I harvest and season myself. His wood is harvested from either dead or storm felled trees and he recycles old timbers and off-cuts which would otherwise be burnt or left to rot.
In this exciting Collaboration we see the beauty of Craft and Craft food combined.
