The opening of the exhibition launched  Northern Ireland Craft Month and last week was visited by The President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina. The president was greeted by curator Seliena Coyle and Gallery staff. He went on to meet and talk to each of the artists and gave a very informed speech on the importance of craft and making.

Caroline Schofield (pictured below) has been facilitating a master class workshop in Derry this week in support of the CultureCraft exhibition.
