After their very successful Summer Fair in the St Nicolas Quarter, Dundalk, and the Connective 22 Exhibition in Millmount, Drogheda, Louth Craftmark are delighted to be coming together once again to showcase their Winter Weekender just in time for the Christmas season.
With the increase in the cost of living, many people will be looking for more meaningful and budget conscious gifts for their loved ones this Christmas. It is so important to seek out local businesses to keep our communities thriving, whilst also bearing in mind sustainability and being kind to the environment.
“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” said ceramicist Sarah McKenna.
“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 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.
