The Local Hands studio and shop is located on the Main Street, Ballyshannon. We showcase a range of artists work from the Northwest of Ireland. The shop is also 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. Our shop has a large collection of beautiful handmade products, perfect for gifts or unique pieces for your home.
We are run as a collective of artists, makers and designers supporting and promoting each other’s work. If you want to apply to display your work or join our collective, just get in touch via Facebook, all decision go to our committee.
All our products are unique Irish handmade products and with each purchase you are supporting homegrown local Artists, Crafters and Makers from the Northwest of Ireland.
Local Hands is kindly supported by the Ballyshannon Regeneration Group and Forás na Gaeilge.
