Day 2 - Friday 24th May - Basket Weaving in Connemara

Connemara is characterised by a rugged coastline to the south and west with many mountains and lakes to the North and a peat landscape running through its centre. The area is home to the largest Gaeltacht (Gaelic Speaking Population) in Ireland where an estimated 70% of the population speak Irish as their first language on a daily basis. Oozing with culture and tradition, Connemara and the islands have a lot to offer. Today you will immerse yourself in the traditional art and methods of basket weaving with a local artist. Set amidst a picturesque landscape, this hands-on workshop offers a unique opportunity to connect with age-old craftsmanship while learning from a skilled practitioner. This area has always been synonymous with the arts and particularly crafts and there is no better way to see these uniquely crafted works of art than from the people that produce them.
