Shop for beautiful hand-crafts and original Irish design, from jewellery and accessories to home-wares, at the newly opened Design Loft in Powerscourt House! The spectacular gallery in Powerscourt House houses a collection from ten different local designers, artists and makers each month in a rotating pop-up shop.
The collection from local designers and makers, largely from Wicklow and Dublin will cover most craft disciplines including pottery, wood work, jewellery and ceramics. There are also locally produced gifts and home-wares, from exclusive scented candles to natural beauty care.
Irish landscape artists Simon Hoe and Blaithin Quinn, who created the Killiney Arts bone china tableware collection, are among the initial artists ‘in residence’ at The Design Loft @ Powerscourt Estate; as is Deborah von Metzradt, a jewellery and accessory designer who works from her studio in Wicklow town, using antique and vintage materials in an eclectic style.
Designers will also be on hand to meet visitors and discuss their work. ‘Makers Monday’, the first Monday of each 28 day exhibition rota will see a selection of the newly arrived designers present their collections, with detail of upcoming showcases available on the Design Loft website.
