Seán Lemass Public Library, Shannon, celebrates creativity for the next few weeks. Colin Thickbroom's Art Exhibition has been in the library throughout the month of November and will be on display until Friday, 27 November. This is followed by an exhibition by the local Shannon Art Group under the guidance of tutor Natalie El Baba. Their art works will be exhibited from Monday 30th November to Friday 4th December. The following week sees the annual Christmas Craft Fair, running from Tuesday 8th December to Sat 12th December inclusive, during library opening hours. This year, exhibitors will range from knitwear to jewellery to food items, with plenty of variety to be had. To mark the launch of the Craft Fair, we will host a talk on Tuesday, 8th December at 6.30pm entitled 'Making Money from Your Craft'. Emer Ferran, Enterprise Manager with the Design and Craft Council of Ireland, will present an essential tool kit of what to know if you are starting a craft enterprise or marketing a craft product. This talk is a must for anyone interested in trying to make money from crafting. The event is free of charge and all are welcome to attend. Finally, our celebration of creativity will close with an Art Exhibition of works from clients of Rehab Care in Shannon - this will run from Monday 14th to Wednesday 16th December.
