Carlow Made Exhibition during the Heritage Week

     Carlow Made Exhibition during the Heritage Week in August was a lovely finish to a busy Summer for the Valg Studio. I'm delighted to be part of Carlow Made creative collective for the past three years. It is pure joy to come together 2-3 times per year and put together a wonderful show. Our most recent activity was exhibition at Carlow Central Library during the Heritage Week and it was brilliant opportunity to show the beautiful work of talented artists and craftspeople living in county Carlow.


"Carlow Made is a collective of artist craftspeople living within the Carlow county boundary. Our aim is to provide mutual support and to foster a professional standard in our practice. All our members use authentic materials and processes to fashion their pieces. Crafts represented include jewellery, textiles, fashion, woodturning, ceramics, printmaking, fine art. The group exhibits regularly and usually organises two pop-up shops in Carlow, one during the Carlow Arts Festival and one around Christmas."
     I was delighted to show Valg Studio knit inspired collection and floral designs. I have to say that it was honor to exhibit in this historical building, especially in the beautiful G.B. Shaw room. Thanks to the Carlow Central Library for inviting us. Executive Librarian, Fiona Foskin for the warm welcome, all the help and support from the first day.
National Heritage Week is over, it has been great to be part of such an important and wonderful event. Carlow Central Library hosted many interesting events. PenFest is up next, check out the library website for more information. www.carlowlibraries.ie Meanwhile I'm getting ready for the Autumn/Winter shows. More information coming soon. Talk soon, Liga. x
