Tipperary craftspeople get chance to win a free place at craft and design fair

Tipperary’s up-and-coming contemporary crafts and artisan food producers are being offered the chance to showcase their skills at the 25th City Hall Crafts and Design Fair in Cork.

And they have a chance to win a free stand at the Fair if they manage to impress the organisers with a brief description of their services.

Festival organisers are on the hunt throughout Munster for talented new crafts and food and beverage producers for the event, which takes place in Cork’s City Hall from November 24-27.

The competition is open to craft, food and beverage producers who are in business for less than two years. The winner will get to exhibit in the run-up to the Christmas season at the country’s biggest crafts fair outside Dublin.

“The City Hall Crafts and Design Fair gives a vital economic stimulus to the crafts and design industry in the Munster region with an estimated spend in excess of €150,000 per day,” said festival organiser Patrick O’Sullivan. “Shoppers will find a wide range of crafts, artisan-made goods, food and drink, designer handcrafted outfits and accessories at the Fair. “This year we have a lot of new content with many first-time exhibitors showcasing the best of new crafts and food from around the country.”

Crafts and artisan food producers in Tipperary who would like to win a free stand at the 25th City Hall Crafts and Design Fair in Cork are asked to write a brief 150-word description of their practice and why they deserve to be chosen.

Entries, including full name and contact details and the name of this publication can be sent to info@cityhallcraftsfair.ie. The closing date for the competition is Friday August 26.
