Ceardlann Spiddal Craft Village is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and the festivities begin at the annual Féile na Ceardlainne on May 3 and 4.
The féile will feature two days of free events at the craft village, where visitors can enjoy pottery, puppet shows, pinch pottery, willow weaving, clothes upcycling, weaving friendship bracelets, jewellery making, nail painting, zumba salsa, and learn how to Hula Hoop with the Galway Community Circus. There will also be demonstrations in glass craft and art, guided walks, and much more.
Music on Saturday will be provided by the fabulous Moll Hicks and on Sunday by Ceann Golam.
A special event will be held at 5pm on Saturday May 3 in memory of Jesus Modia, the founder of Ceardlann, where past and present Ceardlann members will gather to share pictures, memories, and celebrate Mr Modia’s life. Workshops, demonstrations, and entertainment will take place from 11am to 5pm on both days of the festival.
