'In the Making' at
AFTER it's overwhelming
success last year, ‘In the Making’ is back by popular
demand for a second year. An alternative to the
traditional Christmas Craft Fair, this free event is a
unique celebration of arts and craft making.
In the Making takes place from 11am to 4pm on Saturday,
18th November 2023, in the Saldanha Gallery at Fort
Dunree. It promises to be an inspiring day filled with
creativity and will showcase the talents of local artists.
The event will also provide visitors with the opportunity
to engage in hands-on experiences.
Josephine Kelly - Oil
co-ordinator Rebecca Strain said: “We’re delighted to be
hosting ‘In the Making’ again this year, which features
a diverse array of artists and makers demonstrating
their wonderful skills and allowing visitors to witness
the magic of creative processes up close. People will
also have the chance to try their hand at various
crafts, including weaving on a loom, woodturning on a
foot-powered lathe, spinning and working with clay."
