The Fibre of our Being is a series of events exploring contemporary textiles which draw on tradition to reinvigorate their process. It will encompass an exhibition of the same title displaying a wide variety of contemporary Irish Textiles, as well as two full weekends of events and workshops that will allow people to learn techniques in dyeing and crafting with textiles. The highlight will be a day with  talks and displays about the source of our fibres and Irish wool production, with displays from small businesses looking to find new ways to use sustainably our indigenous materials. We will finish with an alternative fashion show in the lively cultural hub of Levis Bar in Ballydehob !

These events are run by Kilcoe Studios.

This is all generously supported by Creative Ireland, Department of Culture, Heritage and Gaeltacht and Cork county Council.”

This event is a part of Cork Craft Month with Cork Craft and Design Collective. Summer 2023 will mark the 14th annual Cork Craft Month with over 50 events taking place all across the county.
