About the event

Want to get started in woodworking but don’t know where to begin? Or maybe you’d like a nice handmade chopping board for yourself or as a gift?

Then, join tutor David Scannell for a guided making session where we’ll guide you through making a Chopping/Serving board made from our locally sourced Irish hardwood.

You’ll have a choice of specially picked hardwoods and can make a traditional square board, serving platter style or whatever style you desire yourself.

Additional information 

Benchspace is Ireland’s first, shared, creative manufacturing hub.

Their multidisciplinary workshops are equipped with digital design and fabrication facilities, along with modular open-plan studios.

The founding idea of Benchspace is to assist creative start-ups. Key to this objective is to provide affordable access to work space and professional equipment.

Such facilities naturally complement Further Education and Higher Education programmes producing graduates in creative and making focused disciplines. Benchspace lowers the barriers for graduates taking their first steps into the start-up market.

This event is a part of Cork Craft Month with Cork Craft and Design Collective. Summer 2023 will mark the 14th annual Cork Craft Month with over 50 events taking place all across the county.
