May Bank Holiday Fun

As we start the May Bank Holiday celebrations, I thought I would show a few of the fun raku ceramic hangings that Annabel creates & are for sale in our Schull shop. If you are down and around West Cork this weekend or wherever you are enjoying a good walk near the sea or woodlands, see how many of these beauties you can find or see. We are open in Schull over this May Bank Holiday weekend.

Art from the Beach

The sun is out & it's a wonderful day for a walk out in some of the lovely towns in West Cork or a stroll on the beach....or maybe both. Here at the Heron Gallery, Annabel is an avid beachcomber & designs some beautiful driftwood items which we sell at our shops in Schull & Kinsale. Below are some examples.

Annabel is also designing some works of art made of debris washed up on our local beaches for an upcoming exhibition to highlight the damage caused to marine life. Any usable pieces that can be upcycled such as plastic, rope or twine, black, white or coloured would be gratefully received at the Heron Gallery, Ahakista.

Clothing New In - 'Angel Circle' range

We have a new range of batik style clothing in from Angel Circle. These are beautifully vibrant tops ready for the summer season. In addition to these we have the Keroszyn & Paradiso ranges which I wrote about previously, along with some beautiful scarves to brighten up any outfit. These are stocked in our Schull & Kinsale shops & throughout April we are open Tuesday to Saturday 11am till 5.30pm.

Active April

Despite the brief spell of snow this morning which gave Mount Gabriel a lovely shimmer, spring is definitely on the way as the days are generally getting warmer.

There is lots of activity now among the nesting birds on the Sheep's Head & Mizen peninsula's. Below are some examples which Annabel has beautifully depicted in her Limited Edition collection.




Garden Birds

We are seeing lots of these energetic birds in our cafe gardens at the moment. In our shops, these are beautifully characterised in the art work, homeware & jewellery. Some examples are below, do come & have a look too. During April we are open Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 5.30pm.
