Performance Poetry, Pottery Galore and Lampshades from Linen

On: September 9th 2023
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!
Some notes, important to read:
– Demand for both camping spaces and beds (the later are close to booked up) is high. Let us know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you plan to stay overnight, Thank You.
– Several people asked whether they could bring their kids. The answer is straight – forward: Of course you can, children of all ages are most welcome.
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.
Until then,
Love over Gold!
