DELVE: Demonstrate, Explore, Link, Vision, Evidence.
DELVE is a unique suite of bespoke workshops that brought traditional crafters, artists and designers together to share skills and collaborate. The creatives offered workshops in their respective disciplines and in turn, explored potential new directions and working relationships between designers and traditional crafters/artists.
#DELVE2015 too place at the Abbey Mill in Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal on June 26th & 27th.
This is a #designatmagee project in collaboration with Local Hands & Friends.
The 2 day event was funded by The Garfield Weston Trust & The Allingham Project.
The students that attended were from #designatmagee and LYIT (Erasmus Germany). The students won their places at DELVE as a result of their entries in Poetry In Motion at #allingham 2014.
Unbelievably #designatmagee has now been cut by Ulster University
A serious blow to the creative economy in the northwest. DELVE is just a very small example of a much bigger contribution.
