From Wales to Wexford to work with Bui Bolg

TAILORING TALENTS of a young Wales-based student are being put to good use sewing strawberries for Bui Bolg.

Lou Fryer a student at the University of Wales Trinity St. David has earned a six week internship with the street theatre company as part of the Ireland-Wales Interreg Iva Coracle Programme.

Lou is studying theatre design and production and in her last year she has been specializing in costume and prop making.

'That's what I've been doing since I got here, making props and costumes. I've been working on strawberries for the Strawberry Festival and I'm now repairing a giant deck chair,' she said.

As part of this pilot scheme a fine art student from Carlow IT will undertake a similar work experience in South West Wales.

The Coracle programme offers a scholarship that funds travel and accommodation for the lucky first students chosn to partake in the scheme.

Bui Bolg previously worked with Lou's university when they delivered workshops in puppet production and choreography.

'It's great to be here for the summer, they are a great group and they do really good work,' said Lou.
