Littoral opens in Heron's Court, Skibberreen on Friday 27th July.
Wild Threads say: We are very excited to be taking part in this year'sSkibbereen Arts Festival with our 'Littoral' exhibition. Littoral means 'relating to or situated on the shore of the sea or a lake' and we have had fun being inspired by this theme, so expect lots of watery loveliness and depictions of our own shorelines!
