Learners exhibit in the ‘Greendale Co-working space’ pop up shop

A talented group of entrepreneurs who’ve been part of a new project in Coláiste Dhúlaigh College of Further Education (CDCFE) exhibited their work and products at a unique pop up shop in the Powerscourt Centre in Dublin city centre.

Eight businesses were involved in the ‘Greendale Co-working Space’ project in CDCFE since last September with a wide range of specialties including ceramics, watercolour paintings, healing, music event specialist, fashion and animation.

Irene Hoysted who runs her own ceramics business said: “The year has been an incredible insight into starting your own company and having a shop in the Powerscourt Centre really caps off the end of a fantastic year.”

Irene now plans to create a garden studio to produce her own range of ceramic art and take it to the market place.

Other businesses which exhibited at the pop up store included David Fitzgerald (Irish art watercolours), Corey Joe Humphreys (Animation), Healing From Within (Grainne Nolan), Tanya Elliott Nyegaard (Sculptor Artist), Gosha Creations, Lynda Gelston Ceramics and Suzanne Carla (Music Event Specialist).

Each business used the pop up store to showcase their work and sell directly to the public. Mary Hickie, Principal of Coláiste Dhúlaigh College of Further Education, said on the opening night (06.06.2019) June:

“It is a first for the college and it’s wonderful to be opening this shop in such a fantastic location.”

She thanked Anita Elliott for mentoring the entrepreneurs this year.

Recruitment for companies for this coming September has already taken place and sees even more diverse companies creating the line-up for September 2019.
