Starting @ 10 am
At: Glackmore, Muff, Co. Donegal
More info here: Open Day 2023
We have added 2 more stalls to the great range (for all others see “Cream of Crafters….” In the programme)
– “Linen Lane” is Jill Gurney’s label. The textile – crafter of distinction specialises on lampshades made of pure Irish Linen. Some of our best hand – woven cloth is turned into amazing one – off pieces by her skilful hands. Jill is certainly no newcomer to the Open Day, her return with a stall is going to “light up our day” – in the true sense of the word. At her stall, she will also have some paintings by her daughter Cara.
– Lindsay Press is one of the finest potters we know. Her last minute request for a stall completed the broad range of crafters very well. From a small artistic piece of pottery to a strong and sizeable bowl – what you will not find at Lindsay’s stall is not worth looking for! Great to welcome her back at the Open Day.
Now some very special news:
Bernard is coming!
Bernard S. Davis (Birmingham) is a long – standing guest to the Yard – Fest, we are sure he will delight our concert – audience with a poem or two. His unique writing (and reading) has earned him many fans over the years – wonderful to have him back!
In our next “extra – newsletter” which should be out during the coming week, we will give you some bio on our amazing special – guest – Irish dancer Farah Mullan and will also reveal a special guest who you won’t believe is going to perform at the Yard – Fest 2023.
Love over Gold!
