Arts & Crafts

Born out of necessity craft has been inherent in Irish culture since the stone ages.  Over the centuries Irish craft has evolved into a unique and beautiful creative industry; makers still produce items for practical use, but the artist within them has breathed creative life into the tools of our daily lives.  To truly understand the value in each piece of handmade Irish craft visit the workshop, witness the production or join in the making. . .
