We are exhibiting The Irish Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef in The Courthouse Arts Centre Tinahely from September 12th to October 24th. I’m delighted that we will have the opportunity to give our wonderful woolly wonder another whirl. However, we don’t have a Toxic Reef any more, as it was sent of with the Wertheims to [...]
Last night we enjoyed the grand opening of the exhibition and everybody that is anybody was at the preview of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef at Science Gallery Dublin apart from Stitchlily, who was very badly missed.
