Fun Events for Kids & Adults at The National Craft Gallery

Beautiful work by Nuala Jamison at a past gallery exhibit
The National Craft Gallery in Kilkenny is a fantastic place to see gorgeous craft for free, and they also have free events. Here are e upcoming ones from their newsletter. Apologies that I haven't time to write a proper post on the events, but I'll pass on what they've sent me. I think I may borrow a child so I can do the Tin -Can Treasures. Luckily we adults can do Hand To The Wheel without having to source a child as an excuse!
