An exhibition of high quality work by graduates of the Crafts Council of Ireland’s (CCoI) renowned Ceramics Skills and Design Course is running at the new library at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.

The exhibition – in the foyer of the John Paul II Library – runs until Tuesday August 27th and is open to the public.

It offers visitors a chance to see the craftsmanship of emerging ceramicists.

At 3.00 p.m. on August 27th, the exhibition will close with a short presentation followed by a reception.

Opening times: 9am-5pm with late night opening until 9pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Admission is free.

The CCoI Ceramics Skills and Design Course Manager, Gus Mabelson, said the two-year programme, accredited by NUI Maynooth, is challenging but through their attitude, effort and dedication, the graduates have produced some outstanding work. “ This will enhance their own learning as they themselves develop ceramics skills which in following years will be exhibited here at NUIM and potentially on an international stage ”.

Josephine Finn, Head of Department of Adult and Community Education at NUIM welcomed the exhibition and said “We’re pleased to be able to support the work of the Crafts Council as they continue to provide curriculum including practical based training for adults in craft specific areas such as ceramics and jewellery. We’ll look forward to more exhibitions of this type over the coming years as we continue to strengthen our partnership which benefits students and staff together”.
