10 Hands Crafts

10 Hands Crafts are a group of inspirational designers taking inspiration from the Irish landscape. Our master craftspeople have based their contemporary designs on nature and the West Cork landscape which is surrounded by mountains and the Atlantic sea. We use 10 different materials + 10 different skills and often collaborate on craftworks and learn new skills from each other. There is a special energy in the rugged West Cork landscape, which inspires the creative minds who are working in a place that seems magical. Since the early 1960’s West Cork has become home to a large number of artists, designers and crafts people. We share a fascination with the landscape, the swell and sweep of it’s contours and the unique quality of light.
