A big thank you to producers Ann Mulrooney of VISUAL in Carlow and to Eilis Lavelle and Rosie Lynch of Workhouse Union for asking me and to Jon for helping with the install.
I really enjoyed working with two wonderful groups at Open Circle Community Arts Collective over the month of November. The large scale papercuts look great and are now installed in the Goods Shed opposite MacDonagh Junction in Kilkenny until Christmas. Well done to all involved and a big thank you to Polly, Aoife, Zoe and Ken for helping to hang the work and to Sheila Jordan for organising it all. The project was supported by the Kilkenny Arts Office and the Kilkenny Carlow ETB Training Services.
