R-Space presents contemporary craft with a seasonal flair for their Festive Focus Exhibition.

The gallery has invited eight local artists, designers and makers to exhibit their speciality, handcrafted pieces that will make wonderful Christmas gifts.

Lisburn Mayor, Councillor Andrew Ewing, recently opened the exhibition and had the opportunity to meet the artists and talk with them about their jewellery, ceramics, prints and textiles.

During the opening event, Lisburn residents shared a glass of mulled wine with the talented local makers, discussed their handcrafting skills and gained a special insight into the vibrant craft community that Northern Ireland is home to.

Festive Focus continues until December 24 and opening hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 11am-5pm.

R-Space Gallery is a contemporary visual arts space, presenting a programme of exhibitions, events and arts activity in the City of Lisburn.

Their ambition is to increase access, understanding and enjoyment of contemporary visual arts, crafts, design, performance and other related arts activities.

R-Space collaborate with a diverse range of excellent, challenging, local and international artists working in different media to provide audiences from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds with different points of access to the arts..
