Description: Derryaun Crafts Suzie Sullivan runs a small craft business in the wild...
Derryaun Crafts Suzie Sullivan runs a small craft business in the wild surroundings of her home in the mountains of South West Mayo. She offers innovative courses covering a wide range of crafts, including dyeing, felt, basket weaving, batik, silk paper and jewelery making to name but a few. She also makes and sells beautiful handmade jewelery using her own hand made beads and textile art. She gets her inspiration from the surrounding countryside, and over the years has developed her craft techniques to cross the boundaries of craft and art. Her collections can be seen in Sea, Sky, Shore Gallery and Leaping Lizard, both in Westport and in her newly built studio near Westport.

Suzie Sullivan is from Cheshire and has set up her own workshop. She runs jewellery making workshops which can be arranged for small groups. I found it engrossing - the fime just flew... More
