The recently launched Inside (CRAFT) tourism initiative is set to visit Boyle this weekend.
The project, an ambitious new craft tourism drive is set to raise the profile of counties Leitrim, Cavan, Roscommon and Longford as a creative region by showcasing the work of craftspeople, designers and artists living and working here.
Inside [CRAFT] will hold their pop up event in Lough Key Forest Park from September 20th – 24th.
Covering a wide breadth of creative disciplines, Inside [CRAFT] has to date attracted a multitude of designer-makers; sculptors, book-makers, mixed-media artists, wood-turners, ceramicists and fashion designers. An on-going drive to signup new members will continue via the website www.insidecraft.ie
Participating Roscommon crafts people include: Anne Rigney, Frances Crowe, Geraldine Beirne, Irish Felt Fairy, Kate Oram, Michelle Made This, Naomh Padraig Handcraft, Rachel Feeley, Siobhan Cox, Smyth Knives, The Claypipe Visitor Centre and Una Bhan Tourism & Crafts.
