AE is very excited to share news of our home town's inaugural Design Festival. With much thanks to the hard work and vision of a great lady, Sligo will celebrate its remarkably diverse design and creative community. The programme is an exciting collection of talks, workshops, exhibitions and design craic. I'll be chatting with the beautiful Ana Vahey about design and manufacture on the Irish West Coast. You can catch us in The Model Arts Centre, at 12.45pm on the 5th of November.
The eclectic Fresh Talent exhibition is also touring in Sligo for the week, and we are delighted our AE Canvas & Cord Satchel is among the design on show. The Lino Print workshops with the jolly Ian Jermyn sound rad, as does the Marshmallow challenge and tea with Annie West. Denise Rushe will be sharing her social wisdom on Tuesday and that evening Triona, of ModaFix will be sharing her all round trendiness. Workshops range from Flower Crowns to Solidworks, the week is packed with practical and genuinely interesting events.
