Into 2016

An Invitation

Our area here in South Wexford is now rich with talented craftspeople, musicians, makers and foragers - also growers and farmers. Since the addition of a residential space to our Potter's Yard, we have been thinking of ways to offer a taste of the area and its talents to our visitors.

At present Ultan and myself are designing exciting 'workshop bundles' which would include accomodation, craft workshops, foraging trips in season and evenings of music or just quiet relaxed dinners in our atmospheric home.

If you have a wish to immerse yourself in a 'Hands On' adventure with us do let us know your thoughts and dreams of even a small taste of  the good life. We will enjoy hearing from you and endeavour to knit together an engaging and authentic personal experience.

The Potters Yard Muse

A conversion has happened at The Potter's Yard - studio workshop and home to Patricia and Ultan (Men Who Built Britain and McAlpine's Men) It is not exactly a road to Damascus moment, but a very physical conversion of two of our stables into a lovely spacious residential space. Currently we are advertising on airbnb and have had many visitors from all over the world this summer to stay with us.

In the autumn we are offering residential pottery courses for a weekend and for  a week. We can accomodate 4 friends, colleagues or a family group of 4. Self catering, the apartment is ideal with kitchen, double bedroom with ensuite and a main sitting room with a sofa bed which converts into a cosy double by night. We plan to run the pottery courses for beginners and for those with some working knowledge of the craft who would like to improvetheir skills. Working in a concentrated way for a sustained period is the best approach to improving technique and working out ideas for ceramic pieces. We have a huge wood fired kiln at the Yard and firing this would make an unforgettable finale to an ideal week's work. Enquiries for cost and more details of the courses please give Patricia a call on m. 086 1914648
