PLAY an exhibition of selected work by Cork Textiles Network, opens at CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery on Thursday 4 August at 6.30pm, as part of Cork Craft Month. PLAY is a small word with so many meanings - serious for some, fun for others and experienced by all. PLAY is a showcase of textile art through different forms of creation.
