Kiri Cottage Creative Peninsula 2023

Kiri Cottage Crafts is very happy to announce we are participating in the hugely popular Creative Peninsula again this year! 

This is happening up and down the Peninsula between 27 July – 13 August 2023.

The Creative Peninsula is Northern Ireland’s premier celebration of professional Art and Craft.

Now in its 22nd year, and with some exciting changes afoot, this thriving annual event features exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations, all taking place in the picturesque Borough of Ards and North Down.

Our Borough is well knows for its many resident Artists and Makers and during Creative Peninsula visitors have the opportunity to view their work, make a purchase or a commission or try their hand at making something unique.

Kiri Cottage Nalbinding 5

Nalbinding – Success at Turnip House

I ran a Nalbinding workshop at Turnip House on Saturday and had 6 talented and enthusiastic students.

All picked up the technique really quickly, and between tea, coffee and Turnip House special soup, scones and cake we made great progress.

One lovely lady took her project home and finished it, and now has a nalbinded ear warmer for walking her dogs in the cold weather.
