a home for lost and bewildered umbrellas

 “Every product of the spirit or of the hands carries the imprint, the mark, the stamp of a concept of beauty” Le Corbusier


In this project we will re-use and re-purpose broken umbrellas found in Galway, we will dismantle broken umbrellas and create new designs with the materials. They could be sculptures, costumes, shelters or whatever designs develop during the project. We will learn design and sewing skills, as well as share upcycling and recycling skills, in a very sociable and caring setting.
