Chairman’s Message Welcome to Cork Craft Month 2015 It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Cork Craft Month on behalf of the board and members of Cork Craft and Design. Now in its sixth year our growing craft festival spans both the city and county with an abundance of talented craftspeople using their ingenuity and skills to produce exquisite craft products all across the county of Cork. We invite you to join with us in celebrating the diversity of craft available to view, buy and experience in Cork. Cork Craft Month is not just a celebration of craft and its people, it’s also a vehicle to help ensure that we continue to preserve, encourage and nurture the special skills of the people working in the craft sector in Ireland today. All craftwork contains a very valuable ingredient, time: we hope that you will take some of your precious time, to attend our exhibitions, workshops, open studio days and retail outlets during Craft Month. I can assure you, it will be time well spent. With best regards, Tony Farrell - woodturner Chairman of Cork Craft and Design 2015
