Presented by Mary Kennedy and Anne Cassin, Nationwide brings Irish viewers an eclectic round-up of news, views and events from around the country.
MONDAY 16TH NOVEMBER
IRISH CRAFT & DESIGN PROGRAMME
DESIGN HOUSE/REPORT ANNE CASSIN
We are in Dublin for the first of our three programmes on Irish Craft and Design. The Design House is a relatively new retail addition to the street but already it's causing quite a stir. The retail space inside is taken up by Irish crafts people and the shop allows them a shop window for their products.
FELT MAKER/REPORT VALERIE WATERS
We meet another crafts person whose wares you can find at the Design House in Dublin. Reporter Valerie Waters has been to Harold's Cross in the capital to meet felt-maker Niki Collier.
WICKLOW FURNITURE/REPORT HELEN MCINERNEY
One of the emerging designers showcasing his work at the Design House in Dublin is Wicklow based Killian Jackson. As a designer he focuses on locally sourced materials and hand crafted pieces and one of his most unusual creations is his Irish take on a Japanese Tea House. Reporter Helen McInerney recently visited him at his workshop near Wicklow town.
WEDNESDAY 18TH NOVEMBER
This is the second of three programmes on Nationwide this week featuring Irish Craft, design and fashion. On our journey we visit some Irish craftspeople in their workshops in Waterford and we check out a one stop shop for Irish craft and design in Dublin. We begin in Kilkenny, which has long been associated with the very best of craft and design and is the home of the craft council of Ireland.

ORLA REYNOLDS/REPORT ANNE CASSIN
Two years ago we came across an Irish furniture designer Orla Reynolds just as she completed her degree at DIT. Now she has her first product ready for market and Anne Cassin went along to her design space at the Institute of Technology at Tallaght to see it.
PALLET FURNITURE/REPORT NIALL MARTIN
Design is the thought process that goes into making something and you can't get more down to earth than a pallet. Reporter Niall Martin has been to a pallet furniture workshop to see what can be made from the humblest of items.
FAB LAB/REPORT ANNE CASSIN
We travel to Manorhamilton to see some high tech design gadgetry now available in rural Leitrim. Anne Cassin visited the unusual workshop called the Fab Lab which is rather cutting edge.
