Meet the artists on the night.

 

Many of the Creatives working here will open their doors and will be present to discuss their work including:

Peter Wickham and Richard Cleary’s forthcoming project- Making the FABulous House: An exploration of proposals for FABricating domestic buildings.

Studio no. 7 will be open to show the workings of and the process of making this proposal and exhibition. They explore the possibilities for new domestic architecture within the parameters of making and fabrication, and budget, in the contexts of current and future technologies and our current housing crisis. In other words they want to explore the possibility of making homes, coupling digital fabrication technologies with traditional technologies, within a reasonable budget. And of course with all of these parameters in mind, the building must also be beautiful – a place where people long to live.

 

Mara Coastal Creations-

Bernadette Kavanagh from Mara Coastal Creations will be on hand to discuss our local coastline and her work as an environmental artist/jeweller. Bernadette uses local beach-combed treasures such as sea-glass, driftwood and beach-pebbles in her work and her studio, No. 8, will be open for anyone interested in visiting and chatting all things coastal.
