Mayor of Galway to open Creative Makers pop-up shop

Mayor of Galway Mike Cubbard will officially open the 3rd annual Creative Makers Galway summer pop-up shop at the Cornstore in the coming weeks.

The Creative Makers pop-up shop runs throughout the Galway International Arts Festival from July 16 – 28 at the Middle Street venue.

This is the third summer that the pop-up shop has been part of the activity that takes place during the Galway International Arts Festival.

Galway Creative Makers is a group of creatives who produce premium quality, Irish made products and showcase them for the people of Galway at the pop up show run with the support of the Local Enterprise Office Galway.

This year the group has increased in number to 35, with 25 of these exhibiting at this summer during the arts festival.

The pop up shop will feature  a wide selection of locally produced craft including jewellery, candles, soaps, ceramics, original art, greeting cards, notebooks, calendars, children’s books, wood crafted pieces and pottery.

Mayor of Galway, Councillor Mike Cubbard, will formally open the pop-up shop at 2pm on Tuesday, July 16.

We are very excited about this year’s pop-up during the Arts Festival” says Joanna Cronin, of Peppermint Jewellery.

“And with their Box Office changing location to the Cornstore this year, we are even more excited, and can’t wait to share the Cornstore with the Festival Box Office staff, volunteers & customers.”
