The Galway Wool Co-op is holding an art exhibition on the 22nd of July at their annual Meitheal in Althenry, Galway.
They invite artists, designers, and crafters in Ireland to engage with the themes and concepts that connect the Galway Sheep breed to the Irish landscape. The Co-op aims to creatively enrich the knowledge of Ireland’s authentic sheep breed with a wider audience.
Submissions are now open. Collaborative pieces are welcome. You will be able to sell your work – there’s no commission fee.
To participate, please DM via Instagram* @michellehickeyart by midnight 31st of May. She will email you the details.
Where to get Galway Wool? This Irish-raised wool fibre can be obtained from Donegal Yarns. It is 7.50 euro, per kilo. If that is too large an amount, perhaps folks can pool together? To purchase, call Donegal Yarns at +353 (0)749738055
