Christmas Craft Event

Mark Dunne, General Manager, Newpark Hotel; Newpark Hotel pastry chef Kim Finnegan; master florist, Lamber de Bie; and Lorraine Corrigan, Amber Kilkenny Women’s Refuge.

As part of YuleFest Kilkenny festivities, the Newpark Hotel is organising a very special charity Christmas Craft Event in aid of Amber Kilkenny Women’s Refuge this Saturday, December 9th.

The event takes place from 10am to 1pm, and will be an opportunity for people to learn more about making their home even more festive this holiday season, as well as an opportunity to pick up some beautiful handcrafted gifts created by local artisan producers.

Dutch master florist, Lamber de Bie will host an exclusive Wreath Making Workshop, guiding guests through how they can use seasonal foliage and festive colours to create a beautiful wreath that will take pride of place on their front door this Christmas.

To keep with the festive feel, guests will also enjoy a Mince Pie Cookery Demonstration with one of the Newpark’s exceptionally skilled pastry chefs, Kim Finnegan, who will share secrets on how to make mouth-watering mince pies to indulge in this holiday season.

All guests will leave Christmas-ready, with their very own handmade wreath and the delicious Newpark Mince Pie recipe.

All proceeds raised on the day will go to the local Amber Women’s Refuge.
