Local Hands is a group of local artists and crafts persons based in Ballyshannon, South Donegal. The objective of the group is to support each and promote and sell our works of art/craft. The Local Hands Committee together run the Local Hands Shop, in which we work, exhibit and sell our products. The shop is located on the Main Street in Ballyshannon.
Local Hands are committed to a cooperative ethos in which we support authentic Irish Local Arts and Crafts from the Donegal and Leitrim region.
Our shop also doubles as a Studio and so not only will you find an incredible range of hand made local Irish products you will also find the artists themselves working in the shop and can watch them at work.
Our members include a broad range of arts and crafts, including: pottery, metal workers, glasswork, crochet, jewellers, soap makers, wood turners and felt makers.
The group is supported by Ballyshannon Regeneration Group (BRG),
