Hands Craft Festival

Rediscover Ireland’s rich heritage & lost traditional skills.

From Friday 24th May through to Monday 27th May, An Creagán will host a traditional crafts and lost skills Festival called 'Hands'. Inspired by one of the greatest and well known Irish TV documentaries 'Hands', our festival will give people the opportunity to learn Irish traditional crafts from master crafts people. These skills are seeing an upsurge in popularity due to modern technology as people are inspired to learn a lost tradition through social media.

Learn skills such as foraging in the wild, lace making, firing pottery, straw craft, cordage, fermentation, frame loom weaving and herbalism.

Crafts in the courtyard event will be held on Bank holiday Monday 27th May. Inspired by the simple principle that people are fascinated when artists and craftsmen openly demonstrate their skills and discuss their work. Visitors can observe, buy and enjoy exhibitions and performances by local artists. Entry is FREE on this day.
