It was ‘snow’ joke driving in Omagh today with three inches of snow to make the short journey from The Silverbirch Hotel to Omagh Enterprise Centre. Watch my snowy video here! But my entrepreneurs made it and together we have created this digital story from the JSB Digital Storytelling masterclass in conjunction with the Harnessing Creativity programme and Omagh Enterprise.
So here’s a snapshot into today’s attendees and their businesses.
Niall Bell – Business Coming Soon
Video is going to be at the heart of Niall’s new business. Niall is studying web design and is currently building his new site.
Catherine Pritchard from The Crosshill Gallery in Omagh brings art to life and sell original artwork from original artists – they also have an in-house glass artist who does commission. Currently they are showcasing the fabulous work of Doug Hyde. Click on the image below to find out more.
Bernie McNamee from Ulster Supported Employment Limited (USEL) in Omagh. What a fantastic charity that provide employment to and seek employment for people with disabilities. Have you heard of The Vintage Satchel Company? Well you better take a look! They are on Twitter. Minister Farry will officially launch the company this week.
Tony Moore is a digital / fine art photographer. What you ask? Well Tony uses multiple exposure to highlight the finer detail of the images he shoots which are interiors, landscapes and architecture.
Tony says, “my take on digital / fine art photography is light, definition and detail. You get to the heart of the image to understand the story.”
Emma Stewart of Truly Scrumptious Cakes by Design treated me to two lovely cupcakes – raspberry and white chocolate and chocolate fudge.
