Installing the Wall at Dublin airport

The Wall Moves to the Airport in February 2014
After sitting in storage for a while the Irish Wall has made it to its new home at Dublin Airport!
It took a some TLC from Cillian O’Suilleabhain to tweak it back into shape as the wood that we used had been quite wet when the project was started and had shrunk a fair amount. But it’s now looking good again and getting seen by passers-by at the airport.
I’m looking forward to seeing it again myself when I pass through on Monday on my way to China. A great way to prepare for the next crazy ‘Wall’ project!
For the first time in many years I will be exhibiting at a fair with my good friend and collaborative partner Sarah Parker-Eaton! We will both be at Handmade in Britain this year – stands 27 and 28 from the 8th – 10th November 2013.

This year will be Handmade in Britain’s seventh at Chelsea Old Town Hall and once again, their annual showcase will begin the Christmas season with exceptional craft and design from over 90 designer-makers. This year’s show will feature exhibitors in all disciplines including furniture, jewellery, textiles, ceramics and glass – all with a focus on absolute quality and craftsmanship – whose work is available to purchase or commission directly from the maker.
Alongside our established makers, this year we are very excited to launch our New Graduate Showcase, a celebration of new talent in a dedicated gallery at the heart of Handmade in Britain 13.
