Welcome to Grennan Mill Craft School

Established in 1981

Grennan Mill Craft School is located in the converted grain lofts of the Island Mill, an old flour mill, dating from the 18th Century, on the banks of the River Nore in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny.  Spacious and well equipped craft studios and also gallery areas for exhibitions have made their homes in the lofts.

Grennan Mill Craft School is funded by Grennan College and the Kilkenny and Carlow Education and Training Board (KCETB).  It provides a Post Leaving Certificate Course with Grennan Mill Craft School Certification and also QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland) Certification in Art, Craft and Design at Level 5 and Art at Level 6, at the completion of the 2 year course. The school is now established as an important centre for the study of crafts and attracts students from all over Ireland and further afield.

The aim of the course, under the guidance of specialized tutors, is to equip students with skills to enable them to make a decision about a possible future in craft. Students who are accepted for the full time course will gain experience and intensive tuition in a broad spectrum of crafts: Batik, Ceramics, Metalcraft, Printmaking, Woven Textiles and Drawing. Courses are practical and coincide with the abilities of the individual. From the outset, Grennan Mill offers a person with talent and a genuine desire to learn, a unique opportunity to explore many types of media.

Grennan Mill Craft School may well provide the opportunity and impetus for progressing to Art College, an apprenticeship in a particular craft or a craft-based career.
