A Colourful Week

This week is turning out to be a riot of colour and I thought I would share a bit of the colours that I have been surrounded by. Who knows, this teaser might just entice you to go and have a look at the pretty exhibition of The Irish Reef, which is created by some 100 people from all over Ireland and which we have just assembled in ‘the greenhouse’ for everyone to enjoy for the next couple of months.

It is such a privilege to be part of this project. So very many people have put so much work into creating this woolly wonder and each time we put it on display I am humbled by it’s beauty while we try to make each piece shine.

The Irish Reef is on display until September 23rd, 2011 at ‘the greenhouse’, 17 St Andrews Street, Dublin 2. The exhibition is open from 9.30 to 5.00 pm on weekdays. Admission is free. Workshop schedule to follow.

    Fantastisk flot, Irene! Er det dig alene der er creator eller hvodden?

    Marianne, det er hæklet af omkring 100 forskellige mennesker og så er vi tre der har sat alle disse mange stykker sammen til dette koralrev. Een satte The Bleached Reef sammen, een The Toxic Reef og jeg tog mig af det uldne.
