Delegates Craft Fair: iMuseum, Kingswood Grove, Douglas
The 7th North Atlantic Native Sheep and Wool Conference is holding a fair of work at the iMuseum in Douglas. With work from the International delegates as well as from those closer to home, it should be a fascinating and stimulating display, a rare opportunity to see these artists’ skills and flair. You will be able to see and purchase work from some of the speakers who are internationally recognised.
Entry is £3 for adults, and children are free. As they are International delegates, there will be no credit card facilities.
Open to the public on Friday 13th of October (12 noon to 4.30pm) and again on Saturday 10am until 4.30pm, you would be advised to get there early as demand is expected to be high.
Also on Friday, there is a lot going on in Laxey. A Loaghtan exhibition at the Hodgson Gallery (7th-28th Oct) and a Craft fair at the Working Men’s Institute will both be well worth visiting and both are open to the public. The Hodgson gallery are running a competition for the best Loaghtan Cosy, but you’d better hurry as your entry must be in by the 2nd of October. If you have something to enter into the exhibition “All Things Loaghtan”, contact the gallery directly for terms and conditions. The Craft Fair at the Working Men’s Institute runs on the Friday 13th only, but will be open between 11am and 9pm. With workshops, sales and a buzzing atmosphere, you can be sure that you will come away energised and inspired.
