AUGUST Craft Month celebrates local craft in Ireland throughout the entire month, with local Mayo makers from the Foxford Woolen Mills getting involved in the nationwide initiative.
This year is the largest ever August Craft Month with a packed program of over 230 events including workshops, exhibitions and festivals to allow audiences to immerse themselves in local craft.
The exciting free Foxford Experience is taking place on Sunday, August 21, at the Foxford Mills.
Learn all about their story from the beginning, with the visionary woman who founded the mill 130 years ago to provide employment and empower locals, to weaving through the decades, with some interesting stories and a glimpse into how their famous throws are made, still to this day, in the mill.
The Foxford Experience short tours take place daily at 10.30 am and 11.30 am in the mill.
People can enjoy creative craft celebrations on their doorstep, as well as hit the road on a craft inspired adventure or staycation.
Craft NI, Design & Crafts Council Ireland and Cork Craft & Design have come together to deliver this important initiative.
