Filament Fibre Artists would like to extend an invitation to our friends and followers to the Launch of Hands On: The Art of Crafting in Ireland by Sylvia Thompson. The launch is on Tuesday 10th July at 6pm in the Royal Hibernian Academy, home of the Irish Design Shop. The book features images of Filament’s Latitudes Exhibition at Airfield during the Year of Craft 2011.
The Art of Crafting in Ireland
Hands On is a celebration of the abundance of crafts practiced and taught across Ireland. Dry stone walling, hat making, beekeeping, pottery, thatching, cider & wine making, knitting, quilting, leather work, wallpaper conservation – it’s all there and more! In full colour, and lavishly illustrated, this beautiful book highlights the profusion of talented craftspeople in Ireland, as well as encouraging the creativity of the readers.
‘…the thing about craft, about the making of everyday objects that are beautiful and/or useful, is that our everyday life is enriched.’
