Coláiste Ide students started work experience on Wednesday when they helped to hang the exhibition. They were lucky to meet and learn from many of the artists who have work included in the exhibition gaining a real insight into the production of the work and the time and dedication involved in the making of textile art works.

The Knitting and Stitching Show opened to the public on Thursday and the students manned the Seascapes exhibition and passed on the information they learned about the work to the visiting public.
Students also had the opportunity to browse the other exhibitions at the show and meet and learn from many artists from Ireland and the UK. Some of the students also helped at the Filament Fibre Artists exhibition learning about the work from the artists and meeting the public.
