IRELAND 2017: An Irish Toast from Coast to Coast

Workshop Description

Experience the splendor and magic of Ireland with Maverick Mosaics, as we open Irish doors for you to learn, create and laugh. Get ready to enjoy a rich and memorable week of history, culture, art through the ages, music and food.

Our trip will focus on Ireland's art and cultural achievements through the ages. We will collect materials along to make a beautiful art souvenir on one of the final days of our trip.

This trip will begin and conclude in Dublin.

From Dublin we travel north to the Giant's Causeway. We then make our way west from Donegal to the Cliff's of Mohr and then on to County Kerry where we will be based for a few days while we explore the rocky eastern coastline visiting small towns, farms and villages. All along the way we will have private studio visits with stonemasons, potters, iron workers, textile and glass artisans. After 9 amazing days of adventures and friendship we make our way back to Dublin via our private coach for our closing night dinner and easy access to the Dublin airport.
