Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre is the largest privately run arts centre in the south of Ireland, and provides arts and crafts courses for adults and children, including pottery, glass fusing and stained glass, jewllery-making and mosaic-making. The centre runs weekly morning and evening classes, weekend breaks, summer schools and tailor-made workshops for corporate groups and private parties.
It can accommodate up to 20 people in one class and up to 50 in a group, or as few as two or three at a time. All of its courses suit beginners, enthusiasts and professionals, using a wide range of facilities and techniques. The pottery includes electric and raku kilns, stoneware and earthenware clays, and we teach throwing, hand-building and all varieties of glazing. Drop-in classes are available for visitors, including families, by arrangement – you should remember that it takes a week to 10 days for finished pottery to be fired and glazed, so you would need to return to collect your work. Private tuition is also available for 3 or 6 hour sessions. The Coach House Gallery at the pottery shows and sells ceramics and glass work and is open 10-6pm daily.
