“Cork Craft Month 2012 is a month long celebration of the amazing abundance of high quality craft produced in Cork County and City.”
I got a sample of it yesterday in Cornmarket Street and it is amazing. There are displays all over the city and county and you may see the details here. The Cornmarket Street display is just for two days and today (Sunday 26th) is the final day.
Paul Ryan's lamps
You’ll find the exhibit indoors, next door to KT Max, across the road from the Cornstore. There are not many stands but all have quality. Cronin’s Forge from Durrus are displaying their ironworks while Paul Ryan has a great selection of handcrafted designed lamps.
The two that really caught my attention though were the Artisan Soaps by Mianra, better than those of Provence, and the work of Blackwater Woodturners (Lorcan and Anne Dunne).
Look out for these amazing works and more as the craft month continues until September 9th.
