You’ll enjoy spending a few days in the company of fantastic craftspeople in the beautiful setting of West Cork’s Sheep’s Head peninsula. And whether you’re experienced in working with stone or an absolute beginner, you’ll be made welcome by our creative community.
Multi-Day Workshop Passes give you access to symposium workshops at discounted rates.
Unleash your own creativity at the West Cork Stone Symposium as you learn from stone masons, carvers, and sculptors whose work carries ancient traditions into the future!
Single day passes are also available.
Training (We appreciate our creative tutors who travel from across Ireland and are regsitered with the Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland. We pay them for their work and provide them with accommodation and food).
Use of stone, tools and equipment (We provide stone for the carving workshops, and you can take your piece home with you. The Muintír Bhaire GAA club has provided the stone for their wall, which will be a beautiful and lasting part of their local ground.)
