SUMMER FESTIVAL OF CRAFT Woodturning Video And Talk

Featured Image


Video and talk about woodturning with John Sinnott

John will introduce you to the mysteries of discovering a beautiful wooden bowl hidden within a block of wood.

Curious about the various types of wood he uses? How he ‘knows’ what to find inside?  All will be revealed in talk and video presentation.



August Craft Month in The Makers House is a special and unique experience.  Where else would you see the work of twenty-three local Designer Makers and meet with them, talk about their ideas and inspiration?  

A full programme of activities throughout the month of August. Visitors can watch demonstrations, take part and try art and craft and other techniques for themselves.

The month-long festival event is aimed at those interested in having a hands-on experience of art craft and design. Suitable for all age groups. Families are welcome.

See the stunning range of work by our Makers : Print, Ceramics, Stained Glass, Art (including mixed Media, Wax Encaustic, Gold Leaf, Watercolour, Oils)  Sculpture, Stone Mason, Quilling, Photography, Woodturning, Jewellery, Knitwear, Leather, Textiles, Candles, Soaps and Balms. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to Meet The Makers.  As they run the gallery one of them is there every day. 

The Makers House venue is fully accessible. 

During August Craft Month one or two of our Makers will be on hand each day as part of our Meet The Makers ethos.


This event is part-funded by Design & Crafts Council Ireland for August Craft Month 2024.
