Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre provides arts and crafts courses for adults and children, specialising in pottery/ceramics, stained glass, glass fusing, jewellery-making, and mosaic-making.
We run weekly classes, weekend breaks, adult/teens summer schools and childrens' summer camps, and tailor-made workshops for corporate groups, tour groups, families and private parties. Kinsale Pottery is situated just 20 minutes from Cork Airport, close to the centre of the beautiful historic harbour of Kinsale, famed for its restaurants and shops.
We can accommodate up to 20 people in one class and up to 50 in a group, or as few as two or three at a time. All our courses suit beginners, enthusiasts and professionals, using a wide range of facilities and techniques. The pottery includes electric and raku kilns, stoneware and earthenware clays, and we teach throwing, hand-building and all varieties of glazing.
The pottery is in the converted stables of the home farm for Ballinacurra House, and the ceramics shop and gallery is in the eaves of its coach house, which dates back to 1770.
