"Ballydehob - The Home of Craft" looks at 60 years of hand craft in Ballydehob West Cork, where hundreds of Artists and Crafts people have been coming to live and work since the 1960's - attracted by the beautiful countryside, quality of life and affordable house prices.
"In this 30 minute documentary Angela Brady talks to Brian Lalor curator of the Ballydehob Arts Museum's first permanent craft collection. Angela visits the 'Working Artists Studios' to look at the Craft exhibition on contemporary crafts with Paul O'Colmain who also contributed his music. Angela
then meets several artists to inform us about their work from Pottery, and basketry to bespoke jewellery and silk weaving - including the next generation contemporary works".
This video was made possible with a grant from Creative Ireland-Cork Co Co and thanks to Design and Crafts Council of Ireland for sponsoring the launch.
Thanks to all the craftspeople for taking part.
