Local Hands is a co-operative style fusion of Artists and Craftspeople. Based in Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal, we work together to showcase, support and sell our work and to promote the wealth of artistic talent in the surrounding region. Our emphasis is on high quality unique and authentic Irish art and craft which is locally produced in the Donegal, Fermanagh, Leitrim and Sligo region.

The Local Hands shop is located on Main Street, Ballyshannon and is also used as a studio space so visitors can meet the artists themselves and see them at work. We cover a wide range of disciplines including Woodturning, Crochet, Silversmithing, Blacksmithing, Glass blowing, Pottery making, Felt making, Jewellery, Soap making, Stone Carving, Painting and Illustration.

So whether you are looking for a unique quality crafted gift for friend or family, or a “wee treat” for yourself, we’re sure you will discover something that’s just right at the Local Hands studio shop in Ballyshannon or here on www.localhands.ie . Many of our gifts can be shipped worldwide… just contact the artist for details.

Local Hands is kindly supported by the Ballyshannon Regeneration Group and Forás na Gaeilge.
