Narrative Tools: Do you have stories or photos of tools/craft items passed down to you?

Posted 26.06.20

The Narrative Tools project has been inspired by National Design & Craft Gallery’s (NDCG) exhibition, Generation, and it has been launched to coincide with the Bealtaine Festival At Home 2020. Bealtaine is Ireland’s national festival which uniquely celebrates the arts and creativity as we age. The festival is run by Age & Opportunity, the national organisation that promotes active and engaged living as we get older. 

Design & Crafts Council Ireland's Education and Outreach team at the National Design and Craft Gallery is working with artist Caroline Schofield to develop this project. They would love to hear stories and see photographs of tools or craft items you received from a family member that you still use today, or that may have inspired you to take up a craft. Penned narratives are also welcome. Content gathered will be uploaded to and NDCG's social media platforms. NDCG hopes to showcase the ‘Narrative Tools’ project as part of Bealtaine Festival 2021.

If you would like to get involved in celebrating family stories and craft connections, please contact or post to National Design & Craft Gallery, Narrative Tools project, Castle Yard, Kilkenny.
