I like to tell you about upcoming events that are coming up (such as this, this and this) so that if you are free that you can go and visit. And Irish Designer’s showing their work in Heal’s in London is certainly an event if you are in London that will be worth a visit.

The iconic London retailer Heal’s is hosting a ‘Design Ireland’ from 7th March to Sunday 27th March 2016 as a celebration of Irish creativity. It will be one of the largest showcases of Irish Design that has been hosted in London in many years and looks like it will be quite the exciting event and is in collaboration with the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) .

Karen Hennessy, Chief Executive of DCCoI said: “We are honoured to be collaborating with the internationally celebrated British retailer Heal’s in presenting the Design Ireland programme. The work of the participating designers and makers, who range from family companies established for generations to brand new start-ups, has all been Designed & Made in Ireland and reflects the level of innovation and craftsmanship across the Irish design and craft sector.  We have seen a surge in recognition and appreciation internationally for the quality, diversity and provenance of work emerging from Ireland and are very excited by this opportunity to showcase contemporary Irish design and craft to discerning audiences in London during March 2016.” {via}
