Experience ceramics on the Emerald Isle!
Potters Council is excited to be going to Ireland for the first time. Our inaugural trip to Ireland will prove that travel here will provide a source of inspiration for visual artists. The itinerary for this trip is designed to provide visual stimulation as a valuable teaching and learning tool for those interested in ceramics. This visual inspiration will be drawn upon when we reach the contemporary ceramic studios, where you’ll enjoy four and half days in the studio learning from Darren Cassidy, Robert Lee, Sara Roberts, Julian Smith, and Adrian Wistreich.
