Galway’s newest monthly indoor art and craft market returns to the Roisin Dubh on Saturday 8 March.
The market is a platform for local artists and craftspeople to showcase their talents. It is devoted to handmade, good quality arts and crafts, spread across 24 stalls over two floors.
Organisers Barry Healy and Sinead Mc Kiernan, who are both skilled artisans in woodcraft and textiles, say the response to the market has been amazing so far.
“We understand how important it is to showcase what is being made in our locality. Galway is a hub of creativity and this market will only add to the city’s ambiance. There is a huge creative community in Galway and little accessible outlets to showcase the work.”
Sinead studied Art and Design in Galway and has been dedicated to making and promoting craft since. She makes jewellery, textiles and fashion accessories and teaches a wide range of classes and workshops. Barry is a Furniture Design student in Letterfrack and he is producing some beautiful mirrors from reclaimed wood to sell at the market.
The market runs from 1pm to 6pm and the bar and coffee shop will be open all day.
