Thomastown gets arty

Work by Tunder Toth.

The Thomastown Creative Arts Festival will be held from Thursday, 9th August  to Sunday, 19th August, in the heart of the historic Kilkenny town. This free series of events features a vibrant mix of nationally recognised artists and emerging local creators. Festival attendees will have the opportunity to view the work of over 25 artists and makers who work with an array of mediums from jewellery, glass, and ceramics to photography, sound, metal, textiles and mixed media. 
 
As part of the festival, the Art of Upcycling is a series of installations facilitated by local artists working with community groups to produce work from recycled materials. Installations will be shown in public spaces throughout Thomastown and the surrounding areas.
 
Artists exhibiting as part of this year’s festival include from the Grennan Mill Craft School, Bernadette Kiely, Tunde Toth, The INEX collective, and many more.
