The first of the traditional skills training workshops commences tomorrow Saturday 26th October. Skilled basketmaker Padraig Larkin will deliver this workshop in Cloneygowan.
Padraig, a basketmaker based in Cloghan, Co Offaly, Ireland is extremely skilled in the training of willow weaving and basket making and places are coveted on his workshops. Padraig learned his craft from Joe Hogan, one of the foremost basketmakers in Ireland.
“Since my introduction to basketry I have become immersed in the craft, learning a lot of new skills through some excellent courses, books and good old fashioned trial and error. I have developed my own style based largely on traditional methods with a strong emphasis on quality and pride in my work”
