‘MADE in Kilkenny’, established in 2009, consists of 27 craft members who have combined their drive and passion for their craft to initiate professional makers coming together to directly promote their business, increase public awareness of their craft and of Kilkenny as a tourist destination. MADE in Kilkenny consists of some of Ireland’s finest craftmakers. Many of the craftmakers have won major national and international accolades including, Mark Campen of the ‘Bridge Pottery’ who was three times winner at the Royal Dublin Show 2011 for Ceramics, the Crafts Council of Ireland Purchase Award and the RDS Award of Excellence! Jane Huston was also a winner in the Precious metal category for her beautiful Sterling silver gilt beakers depicting the “Elements”.
Jeweller, Inga Reed also received a huge honour recently when her jewellery was featured as part of a special edition of Irish stamps, issued by An Post, to mark 2011 as Year of Craft.
