Sculpture workshop

Our newly refurbished workshop is available to all practising artists and there is no selection process for use of the space.

Our Workshop is a 300m sq. open space with a 5m sq. entrance. It is open plan but subdivided into 7 work-bays so you will be sharing space with other artists. We have a part-time Workshop Manager on hand to ensure that all artists have enough scheduled time and access to available equipment. Workshop facilities also include car parking space and a well-equipped canteen with free WiFi.

Hire of space in the workshop is available to all professional artists at a cost of €60 per week for one work bay. This price includes access to the equipment with general support from the Workshop Manager.

Kiln hire for glass and ceramic artists is also available. Kiln hire price is calculated per firing plus the quantity of electrical units used. 

Laser Cuter hire is now available. Prices are €50 per project (up to 2 h) and €40 per hour after that.

For bookings, please contact Mick O’Hara: 01-8069013 or the office: 018556735 between 9am-1pm.
