Louth Craftmark have announced their forthcoming Winter Weekender will be taking place all across the county from Thursday 24th to Sunday 27th November.
The Winter Weekender will feature a calendar of exciting in-person and virtual events brought to you by a selection of members from the extensive Louth Craftmark Designers Network.
The Winter Weekender will feature a variety of artistic disciplines including ceramics, glass, jewellery, painting, print, mixed media, textiles, and sculpture, so there will be something for everyone’s taste!
There will be a broad range of one-off events taking place over the course of the Winter Weekender, including Pop-up shops, open studios, Meet the Maker events, talks, live and virtual demonstrations, exhibitions, workshops, and lots of special offers and discounts. It’s promised to be a fantastic weekend full of visual art and craft that you won’t want to miss!
Ceramicist Sarah McKenna commented, “We are delighted to be able to come together once again to showcase the wealth of talented makers in the northeast with our forthcoming Winter Weekender. The Louth Craftmark Designers Network is going from strength to strength, with our driving force being the promotion and support of each of our members’ work. We would encourage people to look closer to home for Christmas gifts this year and if possible, to Shop Local, and Buy Irish.”
Many of the artists involved also create bespoke and commissioned work, so if customers would like to gift that someone special an original piece of art this Christmas, the Winter Weekender would be the perfect time to enquire about this service.
