Overall award, Category winners and Finalist awards.












The  National Enterprise Awards were presented last night in Dublin.  This has been an exciting time for me, as it is a prestigious Irish commission and has been covered extensively by the press.

I have also had press coverage in the local papers, with a story about the creation of the awards.

Great local press coverage



Sandcasting in Bronze & Aluminium Workshop

Dates: Sun 25th March | Sat 27th & 28th October
Course Fees: €190 – 10am to 5pm

In this workshop, participants will learn how to make a sand mould from a solid original, otherwise known as a “pattern”. Bring with you a suitable pattern* and in a few hours you will have a bronze or aluminium casting of that piece! Fettling and basic finishing will be done at the end of the class.

*Advice on suitable patterns (flat-backed or two-part, with no undercuts) will be emailed to you when you book the workshop. Everyday and found objects (bones, shells, nuts, household items) can lend themselves nicely to moulding, as well as your original sculpted patterns.
