DCCI invites you to share your innovative and interesting learnings with other makers via the DCCI Webinars series.

Each 15-minute long MasterCraft talk will give other designers and makers an insight from which they can learn and adapt to their own practice.

Perhaps you have developed a new technique for glazing or sourced new sustainable packaging. You may have doubled your online sales or grown your Instagram followers by 50%. Perhaps you made a business mistake and learned a valuable lesson that could be of benefit to others. Whatever the learning, we would like you to share it.

Each participant will receive a fee for their time of €150.

MADE IN IRELAND is an exhibition which intends to celebrate the skill and vitality of Ireland's makers, and inspire pride in the remarkable work being created in Ireland today.  It will launch at the National Design & Craft Gallery (NDCG), Kilkenny in November 2021 and will tour to other Irish venues in 2022.


It is organised by Mary Gallagher of Blue Egg Gallery, Wexford and Hilary Morley, Galway.  Stephen O’Connell of Glas Contemporary Cork will co-curate with Hilary.  


A number of makers assisted in the framework for the application to DCCI.  Their skills and experience were vital to the process.
