ICA Book of Crafts


The lovely folk at Mercier press have sent me a lovely package! Two copies of their latest publication, The Irish Countrywomans Association Book of Crafts! One copy I will be reviewing in the coming weeks for The Woolly Way of Ireland blog, (which will probably be covered in drops of tea and biscuit crumbs by the end, as I ogle the absolutely beautiful photos). The second copy will be given away as a prize on The Woolly Way. The competition is open from now until the 4th of December!

I'd really like to congratulate the ICA and Mercier Press on the book. I have barely read it yet, but just a fleeting glance show the incredible quatily of the production, and a vast range of skills present. I am always moaning (to anyone that will listen) about the serious lack of Irish craft books, written by Irish craftspeople. This book, a real gem of knowledge and photography, changes everything. I wish them all the luck for the success of the book, and cant wait to dive in and start making some projects from it...
