Salt and the Earth Ceramics Masterclass is led by two outstanding potters Con Lynch and Peter Meanley.
This workshop provides the opportunity to really understand their ceramic craft, through talks and practical demonstrations as they draw on a wealth of experience. Peter will reveal his work on Ballarmine and Toby jugs through moulding and salt glazing whilst Con delves in to the very earth of County Sligo to produce an array of coloured glazes that are synonymous with his beautiful ceramic work.
The Dovecote is a new Studio and Gallery in Sligo offering workshops in unique tranquil surroundings.

its getting chilly, charity Collection point at the Craft Festival 13th Nov Royal Marine Hotel, Dunlaoghaire from 10am to 5pm
Every year we do a collection of winter clothing for the homeless, we have been doing it for a good few years now and has always been fantastic and greatly received by Merchants Quay or other charities that feed homeless people or people in need.
This year we want to support, a Lending Hand, a fantastic group of volunteers who gather with pots of food, platters of sambos, bags of sweets, bowls of veg, plates of sausage rolls, Curries and cakes all for those who need it in the city centre.
What started out as 2 ladies with a flask of stew has grown into “A lending hand- monday nights”. They are such a fantastic group of people but of course they can only do so much, so we want to help them out.
We will have boxes on the stairs of the Craft Festival (13th November Royal Marine Hotel Dunlaoghaire) to collect hats gloves scarves and thick socks, these will be handed out on a Monday night to the homeless or those in need.
I’m sure you can appreciate that the days have gotten colder recently and the nights even more so, we all have the heat on in our homes so I kindly urge you to throw a pair of gloves/socks in with the shopping this week and bring it along with you on the day of the Craft Festival.
This is a family friendly event and hosts over 60 stands of pure craft. We are known for having high quality products at this event and cover a huge range of craft mediums such as jewellery, art, ceramics, wood turning, cosmetics, soaps, candles, cakes, glass, knitting and stitching and much much more.
You are sure to find something for everyone.
We will even be hosting the National Tea Cosy Competition at this event…. for more info on how to take part in this click HERE. This competition is in aid of the Dublin Simon Community. You can donate directly to the Simon Community site here
