Exhibition, Sat 22 Jul - Sun 24 Sep 2017, free entry




An exhibition of new and innovative works from the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland’s PORTFOLIO: Critical Selection 2017–18. The 28 designer makers represented were selected by an international panel, for demonstrating excellence in craftsmanship, design quality and technical skill.

Narratives in Making, curated by Gregory Parsons, considers the provenance of the objects, who made it, where it was made, how it was made and what it is made of. All this is inextricably linked. It informs our relationship with the object. There are fascinating stories here, from the love of material, rituals of making, the design process, the physical rhythm and time involved.

The curator reflects on the contribution contemporary craft makes to our well-being, through the life enhancing intelligence of the makers hand, the delight in what it produces and the joy of owning it. As you become absorbed in their world, you also become a part of these narratives in making.
