First Northword (StoryTagging) Showcase in Northern Ireland

The event took place in Tower Centre, Ballymena, during the last weekend of February.

Northword Creatives Angela from Leopard & Lily, Colin Urwin and Sasha McVey Ceramics were leading on a number of free workshops between Friday and Sunday.

Textile artist Angela Turkington hosted a "Natural Dyeing workshop" on Friday with each participant getting to take home their own silk scarf creation. On Saturday shoppers were treated to a morning of story and song with local storyteller/songwriter Colin Urwin, and friends. To finish the weekend local Ceramicist Sasha McVey led on a family ceramic workshop with families having the opportunity to create their own trio of ceramic dishes.
