Crafted Creatures

The Ark Childrens Cultural Centre, Dublin, Ireland 2011

Specially commissioned by The Ark and the Crafts Council of Ireland to celebrate Year of Craft 2011. The exhibition gave children and families an opportunity to explore a captivating world of crafted soft toys, pets, insects, underwater creatures and mythical beasts, while activity sheets helped reveal the secrets used to bring materials like clay, wool and willow to life as wonderful pieces of art.

 

The Crafted Creatures exhibition was curated by Kennedy and featured work by 28 contemporary craftspeople including Bob Johnston, Lynn Kirkham, Gwen Wilkinson, Mark Oliver,

Frances Lambe,  and David Withers
