SUMMER FESTIVAL OF CRAFT Crafting Light Demo – Photography?

Featured Image


‘Crafting Light’ free demonstration with Kristin Gray

The word photography literally means “drawing with light” originating from the Greek words phos meaning light and graphê meaning drawing or writing. 

Discover how light and shadow can be manipulated in still life type photography, whether for photographing your craft work or posting those lovely foodie images on Instagram!




August Craft Month in The Makers House is a special and unique experience.  Where else would you see the work of twenty-three local Designer Makers and meet with them, talk about their ideas and inspiration?  

A full programme of activities throughout the month of August. Visitors can watch demonstrations, take part and try art and craft and other techniques for themselves.

The month-long festival event is aimed at those interested in having a hands-on experience of art craft and design. Suitable for all age groups. Families are welcome.

See the stunning range of work by our Makers : Print, Ceramics, Stained Glass, Art (including mixed Media, Wax Encaustic, Gold Leaf, Watercolour, Oils)  Sculpture, Stone Mason, Quilling, Photography, Woodturning, Jewellery, Knitwear, Leather, Textiles, Candles, Soaps and Balms. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to Meet The Makers.  As they run the gallery one of them is there every day. 

The Makers House venue is fully accessible. 

During August Craft Month one or two of our Makers will be on hand each day as part of our Meet The Makers ethos.


This event is part-funded by Design & Crafts Council Ireland for August Craft Month 2024.
