This Irish craftsman makes the most unusual headpieces out of basket weaving
Irish basket maker Joe Hogan is used to his designs being re-purposed for fashionable ventures.
Mr Hogan, from Galway creates crafted objects as works of art in comparison to his predecessors who treated basket weaving as a beautiful necessity. In 2011, he collaborated with Irish designer Joanne Hynes' showcase at London Fashion Week, resulting in a "fusion of high fashion and craft".
And in better news for the creative in you, he is one of a number of Irish artists confirmed for the Joseph Walsh Studio workshop Decoding Craftsman in Fartha, Co Cork, this Saturday, September 23. Contemporary Brazilian furniture designer brothers Humberto and Fernando Campana have teamed up with Fendi and Louis Vuitton. In 2009, they designed a 'super limited edition' polo shirt for Lacoste.
