This year for the first time we exhibited at Showcase Ireland under the umbrella of the Dublin City LEO. For those of you not familiar with Showcase it is an annual trade only show that is organised by The Design & Crafts Council of Ireland. Once a year for four days the great and the good of Irish designer makers come together under one roof to show off their talents and sell their wares.
This year was no different and by all accounts it was bigger and better that before. It does the heart good to see the wealth of talent that we have on this little island of ours. Skilled crafts people were widely represented at the show from weavers to knitwear designers, felters, ceramicists, wood turners, furniture makers, potters and of course jewellery designers.
From early on the morning before the show starts we are given access to the RDS to set up our stand. Starting with a bare walled 2m x 2m pitch has its challenges but I think we managed to create an impressive space to showcase our jewellery collection. Even Michaél Martin stopped in for a chat.
Check us out on Monday the 26th on RTE's Nationwide programme, they did a feature on us in the run up to the show. Exciting times!
