Monday, August 10th, 2020 - 6 minutes

“Hen Jewellery” designer from Clonakilty, Niamh Morrison the is one of the drivers of Cork Craft Month - currently underway – which has managed to make the most of the current limitations and here she tells Dave why there are some interesting upsides to being ‘mostly digital,’ particularly for those interested in peeping behind the scenes of craft and design makers across the county of Cork. She speaks of feeling inspired by the sea and sky of nearby Inchydoney & of how working with metal makes here giddy with excitement and says that it’s only in the process that the end product reveals itself to her. Cork Craft Month: 60 masterclasses, craft trails, demonstrations, conversations and product launches, as well as virtual behind-the-scenes exhibitions, open studio tours and family-friendly activities. There is an 80% increase in online events with up to 90% of events free-of-charge. See corkcraftanddesign.com for more.
