Ceramic flax flowers project at the F. E. McWilliams Gallery

The F. E. McWilliams gallery in Banbridge has organised pottery workshops at Mount Ida pottery in which some members of the Armagh U3A have taken part.

The project involved making lots of flax flowers in ceramic which will be installed in the gallery garden for their 10th anniversary. The “Weeping Poppies” from London were the inspiration for this idea.

You will be able to see the results of their work and that of the other participating groups in the gallery gardens at the F. E. McWilliams gallery in Banbridge from 22nd March 2018.
