Additional information 

Maureen Shean experiments and works with eco printing and felting, using natural flora, fauna and recycled materials from her local environment on Valentia Island, Kerry. She is a former science teacher, so experimenting is part of the process for her design work.

Deborah Birmingham learned the craft of mosaic in Italy with the traditional hammer and hardie, has completed commissions, including shop signage and bespoke, abstract wall mosaics. She works with marble, ceramic, glass, slate, stone and Venetian Smalti glass
