Cork Craft Month 2012, 10th August to 9th September, today launched their flagship Pop-up shop on Opera Lane, in Cork’s city centre. The unique shop is open for the month long festival and showcases stunning hand-made craft by nearly 20 different craft people from all over Cork city and county. The Pop-up shop is open daily from Monday to Saturday 10am to 6pm and Sunday 11am to 5pm throughout the month.
Commenting on the opening, Fergal O’Leary, Chairman of Cork Craft and Design said, “ We are very excited about this Pop-up shop, it offers our members a fantastic opportunity to showcase their work in a prime city centre location. The shop has something for everyone with everything from ceramics to hand-made furniture to kids clothing in store and offers shoppers a fantastic opportunity to support local craft businesses.”
