About the organiser

“A visit to The Makers House is an experience. Where else would you see the work of nineteen Wexford Designer Makers and meet with them, talk about their ideas and inspiration? Our journey began 4 years ago and we are going from strength to strength. What began with 9 has now grown to an amazing group of 19 talented and prolific Makers. Each with an interesting and unique story to tell. We have a stunning range of art, candles, ceramics, environmental art, enamel, felted sculpture, glass, herbal soaps & balms, jewellery, leatherwork, metalwork, painting, photography, pottery, printmaking, sculpture, seaglass, stained glass, textiles, woodturning.”
