The studio is based in the historic setting of Skerries Mills, a complex dating back to the 12th century.

Since the 12th century flour has been milled at this unique location. The fully restored complex brings to life the authentic workings of a five sail windmill, four sail windmill, water mill and bakery of the 1800’s. This provides the visitor with examples of how wind and water energies were harnessed by our ancestors.

We are equipped to take up to four students at a time, although, if you’re all good friends, I have taught groups of up to 6.

A three hour lesson costs €50 per person, any silver used is weighed at the end of class and charged accordingly. 

The classes are held on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. 

Please call in advance to check availability as they are very popular; the small class size means they fill up quickly.

Wave ring. A lot of my designs are taken from the beautiful surroundings here in Skerries.
Sands of time rings. When the tide goes out it leaves the most spectacular textures on the sand.
