Meet Our Featured Stallholder

Owner of Crafty Craic, Candle-maker Karen Allison began learning her craft from renowned candlemaker David Constable in Wales.  Famous for his candles in films such as Harry Potter and the TV show Game of Thrones.

Karen has developed the space to include a candle making workshop, a learning space for those with an interest in craft learning in a relaxed setting and a shop packed full of crafts by local artists.

Crafty Craic the Brand

When Karen moved to the Glen of Imaal over 20 years it was to run the village shop and post office. She loved their move to the Glen of Imaal and the community they became a part of. Over the years the space has developed and is now a craft shop and candle making studio.

Crafty Craic’s logo and branding reflects the fun, creativity and rich heritage in the location of the shop and workshops nestled in the heart of the Glen of Imaal.

The inspiration of deep blues, reds with mossy greens and yellow gorse surround us every day in a truly magical place.
