Emerging craft-maker? Could this be you in 2016: "Not only did I get the chance to sell my work directly to the customer...I [gained] experience in working at a big fair like that without the financial risk. There's no question that this prize has been a huge boost to my career." - Chloe Dowds, prize winner at the 2015 RDS Craft Awards.
Enter your work at www.rds.ie/craft by June 8 and be with a chance to win part of the prize fund valued at over €30,000, including the National Craft & Design Fair Award, which Chloe won.
The RDS Rising Stars Concerts are free to attend and the first in 2016 takes place this Wednesday. Showcasing new talent in Irish classical music, these concerts provide a platform (literally) for emerging musical talent.
We believe in the potential of Ireland and this is just one of the ways in which we help realise it. Its one of the reasons we like to think of ourselves as Ireland's Philanthropic Society.
