Due to a bereavement I will not be able to attend the gifted National Craft and Design fair at the RDS. I have a lovely prime location stand in the main hall if anyone would like this please contact me.

Working on a tweak of the new Heather design today. I've painted the back ground first and am now applying the gutta. The back ground is the heather hills of Donegal. #madeinireland #madeindonegal #kokodesignstudios #kokodesignshome #handpaintedsilk #giftedthecontemporarycraftanddesignfair

A day full of calamities as I tripped over the light stand and broke the bulb very expensive and hard to find in the middle of Donegal but now were on fire photographing new work for the website #handpaintedsilk #madeinireland #madeindonegal #kokodesignshome #kokodesignstudios.
