The Exhibition

The first winter Naas Felt and Fibre Exhibition was a resounding success. 
A great crowd turned out for the Opening Night and a huge interest was shown in the work during its week on display. The exhibition was officially opened by Moll Fullam, a well known local dramatist. We held free demonstrations on the Friday which drew a lot of interest and we are already planning our next show!

A big thank you to all at McCauley Place and Naas Community Centre without which the exhibition would not have been possible.
