video link, felt, basket making and pottery

I was sent this link by my friend Olive, it shows some cottage industries in Ireland. A felt maker, potter, millinar and basket maker. I would love to have their life styles. I hope the link works outside of Ireland because it is from RTE and I know when I want to watch links from the UK stations they are blocked. Anyway hope it works!

This is an outfit made from recycled material for The Junkoture competition in Ireland. I cant show the full dress as I dont want to sow the students face.
