Spotlight! Making Tomorrow

Our first Spotlight! feature is on Making Tomorrow, an upcoming 3 day festival of Textiles. Cork is definitely the place to be on the weekend of 7th-9th of March, with exhibitions, symposiums, talks and workshops taking place in a variety of venues throughout the city.

Making Tomorrow, the annual Cork Texiles Network conference, has gone from strength to strength, and is now a well respected event in the International textile circuit. A morning of talks from world renounced Textile Artists, is followed with a choice of workshops from Sketching and Screen-printing with Rachel Howard, Extreme Stitching with Cas Holmes, to Basketmaking with Katleen McCormick to Craft based Social Media with Orla Breslin. There are just a few places left at the Making Tomorrow conference.. Download full brochure PDF and booking form:

As well as this fantastic line-up of talks and workshops, CIT Crawford College of Art and Design will host "Make", a symposium and exhibition opening on Friday 7th March, looking at our relationship to objects, to making; our awareness through touch of our world of matter. A full list of speakers can be seen on their Facebook page. Booking essential.
