What to expect

The Grennan Mill Craft School experience

Over the course of two years students will develop their skills in all the crafts plus drawing. They will gain an understanding of the design process and how their work might be marketed and sold. The student will keep a notebook for each craft and will produce an exhibition of work, which is open to the public for 4 days, around graduation at the end of May.

Thomastown itself is a bustling town renowned for its many artist’s, crafts-people and musicians, making for a varied and lively social scene. The multitude of exhibitions and events that take place in Thomastown during Kilkenny Arts Festival is a testament to the love for the arts in this area.

Students visit many craft studios, exhibitions and other places of interest and inspiration throughout their time at the mill. There are also workshops in additional techniques such as basket-weaving, paper-making, natural dying and framing to enhance the students skills-set.

Annual summer courses, night-classes and short workshops are offered for those who wish to study on a part-time basis.
