STALLHOLDERS:

All Around The Sun

All Around The Sun are Anna O’Byrne, a fine artist and maker and Brian Heffernan, graphic designer. We live in a small house in Dublin with our daughter Eve.   

“We began by making cards to help mark occasions with weight and sincerity. The result of conversation and our shared appreciation for the tactility of paper, the work occupies a space somewhere between art and design. Brian’s role involves the generation of form and the space between the products while Anna works with a focus on colour and ensuring each product is a statement in its own right.  Sustainability, craft and community lie at heart of the ethos that informs the work. Our products are inspired by the shared human experience and celebrate the everyday highs and lows that make up our lives.”

Bodhi Blends

Bodhi Blends is a humble little shop of sprays, balms and lotions using plant based potions. Working with high quality, organic and ethically sourced botanical ingredients to create products that are designed to support and nourish inside and out. Carefully crafted by hand in small batches with lots of love by Aisling Walsh in Dublin.

“I started Bodhi Blends years ago to satisfy my own creative itch I have for concocting. I love everything about the creative process this job allows me- deciding what kind of thing I want to make and why, sourcing the best quality ingredients for it, the many many trials that go into perfecting the final result (many imperfect jars gifted to pals in the meantime!), the excitement when I finalise a formulation, the beautiful smells, the gorgeous sensation smearing it onto skin and the lovely warm fuzzy feeling seeing other people try it out. I know the cosmetic industry can be a bit gross in terms of preying on peoples’ physical insecurities. But for me skincare is all about the application and the ritual that you can create around it – Taking the time to really luxuriate in applying something nourishing to your skin, tuning into the smells, breathing them in, giving yourself a little mini massage while you’re at it.”

Dublin Honey Project

Kieran Harnett is the man behind Dublin Honey Project who has been tending to hives in the Dublin region for over 6 years now. 

“We have dedicated ourselves to helping boost the population of our threatened Native Irish Honeybees in and around Dublin. The welfare of our bees is always at the forefront of our management ethos and we re-invest profits into efforts to conserve our native bees and help them fight hybridization from imported strains. 

We keep our hives on rooftops and institutions around the city and green-field sites in Co. Dublin. Our raw honey is sold course-filtered and post-coded to ensure honey-lovers can get their hands on honey as locally as possible.

In August we take the girls on their holidays to the Dublin mountains, where they collect amazing heather honey.”

Ellie Dunne Art

“I am 23 and I live in Dublin. I have Down Syndrome. I am studying art at Stillorgan College of Further Education and I hope to go to art college in the future. I have always drawn and painted but during lockdown I had more time to spend on my art. I painted A LOT.  My work is all abstract and I love colour and pattern. I love the work of Sean Scully, Anni Albers and Agnes Martin. 

My mum started knitting again during lockdown and she made blankets inspired by my art. Everyone loved the blankets but each one took months to make by hand so we decided to see if we could collaborate with a weaver. We have been working with Cushendale in Co. Kilkenny ever since, and this year we made the Ukraine blanket together which raised €15k for Irish Red Cross. The Merrion Hotel commissioned me to make a special blanket to celebrate their 25th anniversary and I took inspiration from the Mainie Jellett painting which hangs in their reception. I love her work too. 

I had two solo exhibitions this year – at Emo Court in Co Laois and at Westival in Westport – and the Government has bought three of my paintings for the National Collection.

This year for Christmas I have two blankets for sale. I also have a signed limited edition fine art print. Everything is made in Ireland.”

Harrys Nut Butter

Harry’s Nut Butter return to the Long Room where it all began for them three years ago. Literally, this room was their factory during covid. Harry will be there over the weekend with all the usual amazing nut butters, their new truffles and a few surprises.

“If you’re a fan of the Fumbally and The Fumbally Stables, you may have heard of us already.  We started Harry’s Nut Butter in the back kitchen of the cafe, messing around with a food processor, some toasted nuts and a bit of paprika. We’ve grown up now and outgrew the Fumbally’s kitchen, so we moved around the corner and we still come here for our lunch. Which is the equivalent of moving out of your parent’s gaff but still getting your washing done by your Ma.”

Kari Cahill Studio

Kari Cahill is Ireland’s leading Pigment forager. She is a visual artist living and working on the West Coast of Ireland. Kari creates paintings using earth, botanics, seaweed and sunlight – harnessing the abundance of colour found in nature to create gestural and experimental artworks. 

“Visually I create bold visceral works that capture the essence of the natural landscape.  Each landscape has its own pallet, and the artworks available at the market this year will showcase the abundance of colour to be found all around us. I create ink from botanics and seaweed, I mull paint from iron-rich earth pigment and use sunlight to create the colours I use in my paintings. I drip, scrape and pour these colours onto paper and canvas, creating mesmerising organic marks and patternations that echo the textures found in the natural environment. 

The market is a wonderful opportunity to see the artworks in real life. The colours and patterns really jump off the surface of the works. I’ll be selling a wide variety of works on paper and canvas in various sizes to suit your space, budget and taste. “

Liadain Aiken Knitwear

Liadain Aiken designs hand-crafted knitwear that is produced in Ireland by a small team.  They make unisex adult jumpers, hats, mittens & scarves, beautiful soft kids hats and hot water bottle covers.

My aim is to connect with a community of people who choose their clothes with consciousness and care.  I design and sample each piece in a home/studio in West Cork. The designs are hand-crafted on domestic knitting machines by two knitters working from their homes.  The pieces then come to the studio where myself and a studio assistant finish them.

Mangan Studio

Mangan Studio is set in a stone grain loft in Co.Wexford by the Blackstairs mountains. Established by Gayle James in 2020 to produce functional pottery for the home alongside teaching people to create their own work. 

“I’m interested in making pots that promote good food and nourish the people who use them. 

The process of making directly with my hands connects me back to myself, it’s why I teach people how to make their own pots, to bring community into the making process and share the empowering tools it offers.  It comes down to building and contributing to a community of people who take care of each other and themselves.”

Native Circles

Native Circles are the artworks of Emily Robyn Archer, a collection of nature based wooden wheels and notebooks aimed at informing and reminding us of the many cycles in nature that surround us.

“Hello I’m Emily, the artist behind Native Circles Art. I create circular artworks based around the cycles of nature. They are mounted on wood, come with a bespoke wooden stand and are designed to be hand-turned with the changing seasons or natural cycle. There are 10 different designs to choose from: Lunar Phases, Wheel of the year, and Seasonal food to name a few. 

I used to work in the Fumbally, and I am lucky enough to find myself immersed in a wonderfully vibrant food/ growing/ making community ever since. Perhaps as a result of this, this year,  my new designs are all about Seasonal Food – in our gardens, homes and wild hedgerows. One is called ‘Veg Patch’ and it’s a guide on what to plant and when in the vegetable garden. The other is called ‘Seasonal Foraging in the hedgerow’ and that one displays some of the magnificent edible plants to be found throughout the year in our wild hedgerows. I have another print called ‘Seasonal Food’ which is all about what local fruit and veg is in season – so we can be smarter about our shopping choices too. I think these three are a powerful trio all about the simplicity & satisfaction of good seasonal food whether you buy it, forage it or grow it yourself! 

I hope that these new prints give more of us the nudge we need to get curious about our food, where it comes from and the fascinating and magical world of edible plants.”

Samyel

Samuel Arnold is an artist, musician and illustrator who makes prints, cards and foraging guides .

“As an illustrator and printmaker, my art revolves around my passion for the natural world, particularly in foraging along the coast line; where I gather seaweeds, experiences and stories. These are the things I aim to inspire in others. My printed artwork is always mindful of natural and reused materials and the use of folding design in lieu of glues or binds. Natural card and papers are primarily used.

Allowing various artforms come together, my work as a musician and lyricist come into play with illustration. In these pieces, I merge depiction with storytelling. Having gathered traditional knowledge of foraging seaweeds, I remain curious to the reimagined uses, myths, recipes and remedies… Along the same lines as songwriting, I aim to draw out the characteristics of the seaweed, using stark white lines and dots in lieu of chords and notes.”

Scéal Bakery

Recognised as one of Ireland’s most innovative and acclaimed artisan bakeries, Scéal are working on opening their first bricks and mortar bakery in 2023. At the market this year they will have their signature christmas pudding and mice pies alongside some jarred festive items – vanilla sea salt brandy butter, marsala soaked prunes, whiskey caramel, three fruit marmalade and blackberry lemon verbena jam. 

“Hi, Charlotte from Scéal Bakery here. Myself and my partner Shane founded Scéal back in 2017. It stemmed from a craving – we couldn’t find the pastries and sourdough we’d enjoyed eating while living in San Francisco that we started to bake our own. 

My main focus at the moment is our Christmas Puddings. The recipe is something that I hold very close to my heart. It dates back to 1903 and was passed down to me through family. It is the recipe I grew up with and I learnt to make it at my family kitchen table as a youngster. Over the years Scéal has appeared on thousands of Christmas tables and been shared as part of countless celebrations. I’m very proud that my family is now connected to many others on such an important day of the year.”

Those delectable condiments that go with absolutely everything, in beautifully packaged box sets for grab and go gifting. 

“We are Delighted to be back in the birthplace of our business – The Fumbally – It was among the cafe walls that the ideas of jarring up our rāyu became a reality. We started off at the infamous flea market around the corner alongside scéal bakery and a bunch of other merry misfits. 

Alongside our usuals we will be doing a very soft launch of a new smoky addition ( not tooting our own horns but it’s lush) and a crunchier improved rāyu!!!  Also for the old timers we are doing up some chilli vinegar pickle. All small batches old school style. “
