Some of the Donegal Designer Makers facilitate workshops in schools including potter Brian Mc Gee, who worked with children from a Newtowncunningham primary school to produce this wonderful mural. It will be installed in the South African Embassy in Dublin. Title ” The Life & Legacy of Nelson Mandela”
It’s my turn to work in the Donegal Designer Makers shop today here in the pretty town of Ardara, and pleased to see tourists are about….Californians and Scottish so far! Weather not bad either!!
Ardara, where the Donegal Designer Makers have our pop up shop got a great mention in The Daily Telegraph at the weekend! Nancy’s pub was named as the best place for a pint and as our shop is just across from it we’re hoping any visitors to the town will call in to see the wonderful crafts and paintings on sale:-)
Two of our members, Karen O’ Kane and Fiona Higgins are busy preparing for their exhibition “Sioda” which will take place in An Grianan theatre in Letterkenny
Margaret Gillespie’s crocheted scarves and hats are for sale in our shop in Ardara. Will you be wearing a bit of green tomorrow?
The Donegal Designer Makers have welcomed another member to the group; photographer Shaun Egan. He produces unique and collectible imagery taking his inspiration from the rich and varied landscape that surrounds him.
From March 3rd our shop will be open to the public. (closed Tuesdays & Sundays in Spring) we have lots of new products in stock to suit every budget!
