There will be a host of hands-on activities with workshops on offer taught by leading textile tutors. There should be something for everyone, whatever the ability, covering an exciting mix of crafts from dress making, creative machine sewing, and classic and contemporary embroidery to creative paper crafting, fabric printing and dyeing.

To Prepare a Face exhibition

Artist and poet, Eoghan O'Driscoll, will showcase a collection of his latest works in his debut Dublin exhibition at The Gallery@Framexperts in Ranelagh from November 9 to 15.

Eoghan is an abstract, expressionist painter who draws on his experience of mental health issues to produce vibrant works on a large scale. His body of work includes both portraiture and free flowing abstract images. With a deep understanding of the human condition, Eoghan's work compels us to stop and reflect on what really matters.
