Craft Master – the search for Ireland’s next big export

The series is broken down into six shows with the first five shows focusing on glass blowing with Róisín de Buitléar (Ireland’s best known glass artist), ceramics with Colm de Rís (one of Ireland’s biggest exports of pottery), weaving with Beth Moran (a master weaver originally from the States but living on the remote but picturesque Clare Island), metal with blacksmith Michael Budd and wood turning with Glenn Lucas (one of the fastest wood turners in the world.

Three apprentices will each week battle it out in their chosen practice to win a place in the final. The final show will crown one of the final five apprentices (one from ceramics, glass blowing, wood turning, textiles and metal) Craft Master 2011 and the lucky winner will be given a stand at Show Case, the international trade show for Irish producers and with the Irish Craft Industry being worth almost half a billion euro annually it’s all to play for.
