Feel like wielding some short nosed pliers on Tuesday? We are going to have design and fun times at 37 Dawson from 6-8pm, this Tuesday 24th February 2015.
Delighted to have been asked to lead a ‘make’ workshop as part of the OFFSET programme this year – am a massive fan of the event and I always love to get amongst it and talk making with people. And I hear there will be booze too, thanks Absolut!
If you’re already registered for the event, I’ll be having a bit of a chat about the design process, visual inspiration down to prototyping and production. We’re going to be making the choice of a couple of different pieces that are in our current collection – so maybe just have a think about your own preferences in terms of colours and materials as there will be a choice of each of these elements.

Do you like to make stuff and play with lasers? Yes, I hear you say….me too. I thought I’d let you in on a super place where you can do both in Limerick. There is a great facility available to everyone with a large homemade laser (!), 3D printers and a large C&C cutter, situated on Rutland Street http://fablab.saul.ie/. It’s run by the Limerick University formed via the architecture department, offering classes workshops and even a new coffee shop. Last time a took a wander through the Milk Market too and headed down to the Hunt Museum (where, by the way, you can buy your very own artysmarty item) and thought how lovely Limerick was. Any questions? Drop them a line and Micheal will get back to you!
