This week we launch our third Pop Up Shop in the UPROAR series.
We are really delighted to be hosting Rachel McKnight’s collection for 10 days.
Rachel is an incredible designer. She graduated in 2003 from the University of Ulster and started her first workshop in her parent’s garage. This is where she developed Rachel McK. Check out all her products at www.rachelmcknight.com
Rachel produces necklaces, bangles, earrings, rings and brooches to form quirky creations in plastics and rubber. The excitement of sourcing new materials and the experimentation with them inspires her to produce original and innovative jewellery. The idea of transparency and opaque colour influences her designs, and plastics allow her to explore this. Simple and uncomplicated shapes and the idea of duplicating these shapes also form the basis for Rachel’s jewellery.
Not only does Rachel have a large range of small batch production jewellery, but she has recently developed a range of home ware products comprising of placemats, coasters and candle holders, which we will also be featuring during Uproar III.
If you’re in Dublin on Thurs evening, (June 7th 2012), please pop in and see Rachel’s great work.
The launch evening is kindly sponsored by Tiger Beer, so we will be serving cold beer throughout the launch, 6pm – 8.30pm.
Her collection will only be here for 10 days, so don’t miss out.
