Springtime Sculpture Course


We, the Irish basketmakers Association, are organising an exciting springtime SCULPTURE COURSE with artist Lynn Kirkham.

Dates: 21st-23rd of February 2020

Cost: €150 for members, or €180 for non-members

Venue: Hosted by Barry Noyce, Rathcabbin Hall, Roscrea, Co. Offaly

Lynn will introduce sculpture and will get the creative mind thinking on Friday evening followed by two days full on weaving to creat your own masterpiece. If you don’t complete it you will still have the skills to finish it at home at your leisure. Willow used will be mixed rods of current season growth and will be charged for what you use. Accommodation is available locally if needed.

To book your place on the course please send a deposit of €50 to our treasurer Trish Killalea. Please state clearly it is for the sculpture course and make sure she has your contact details.

Payment options are on our membership page here
