The Craft & Design Collective presents HOME, an exhibition by Donegal Designer Makers, at Space CRAFT,the group's Shop, Gallery and Exhibition Area, up the escalator at The Fountain Centre, College Street, Belfast,from Friday 6 to Saturday 28 July 2012, Monday to Saturday 10.30am to 5.30pm.

The Preview takes place on Thursday 5 July 2012, 6pm to 8pm - Everyone Welcome!

HOME reflects the work of Artist/Designer/Makers from Donegal and their connection with their home place (Donegal).  For some it is their birth place, while others have made it their home.  The exhibition explores the different elements of what home is to each maker.

Hannah McGuiness, Creative Director, Donegal Designer Makers says, "Our main connection to each other is our home place Donegal.  Whether born here or settled here we have the great fortune of being owned by it and thus feeling part of what is Donegal.  Our county has great dramatic beauty, is subject to erratic weather patterns, has a language of its own, is steeped in culture and tradition.  All these aspects of our life in Donegal are carried through our lifetime, influencing and inspiring our work and us as people".
