I've had a super awesome day today in Bolton at the North West Craft Networks 'Shaping the future' event.  

Three inspirational speakers; two of whom are artist I have long since admired. 

Liam Hopkins and Geoffery Mann

an inspiring talk from Louise Allen about the journey Irish Design has taken in the last 7years and the success she felt the north west could learn from. 

I have left a little star struck; having spoken to both Geoffery Mann and Liam Hopkins and dreaming about how wonderful it would be to be Irish! If not for the craft network support then at least for the accent 🍀
