As part of the Bring Your Own Chair project, three craft makers and/or designers undertook two week-residencies in July and August 2018  within the specific context of a rural town, engaging with the vernacular craft and design history of the locale. The three residencies were led by Workhouse Union and the Design and Craft Council of Ireland. The Bring Your Own Chair Residencies offer a three distinct perspectives from the designers/craft makers to accompany the project’s portrait of rural Ireland today.
