Sad news as beloved arts and crafts gallery Dross Evolution is closing down with FREE materials on offer today from 12 to 5pm

Dross Evolution in Naas is preparing to close its beloved gallery with art materials and other supplies being given away for free today from 12 pm to 5 pm.

Speaking to KildareNow, owner of Dross Evolution Martina Shannon explained that they have made the hard decision to close the gallery after 3 years.

"Dross Evolution has been open for 3 years now and we feel that given the rent and financial environment being as it is that the gallery must close. It's very sad for us all but we are still hoping to maintain a presence online with our website www.drossevolution.com. It will break my heart to close in the next coming days so today we are offering our art supplies and materials to creches, clubs and schools in Co Kildare to let them get items for the children to use," said Martina.

It is understood that the Dross Evolution Gallery will close from 1 June. However, Dross Evolution will continue to do parties in homes or venues and they will also continue to do camps and workshops for creches, clubs and schools. They will also continue to do Commissioned art, props and costumes.

All are welcome to come down to Dross Evolution at the Moat Mall off North Main Street in Naas today from 12 pm to 5pm today Tuesday, May 28.
