CELTIC CRAFT EXHIBITION by Junior’s Celtic Copper Revival.

CELTIC CRAFT EXHIBITION by Junior's Celtic Copper Revival. Opening on May the 19th The Icon Factory is delighted to host an exhibition of hand-crafted copper engravings by craftsman and artisan John Farrell. John created Junior's Celtic Copper Revival in 2011 with the intention of helping to bring back a lost art which due to machinery was being lost. Hand engraving on copper is a unique form of metalwork which creates an inspiring reaction to the simplicity of a metal which is rarely used and appreciated in art. So join us at the wine reception opening on Friday May the 19th at 6pm. The exhibition will run until Wednesday the 14th of June. FOR MORE INFO: https://www.facebook.com/jnrcelticcopperrevival/
