Clay in Dublin?

Clay in Dublin: In a pretty massive change of directions, Slothrop and I will be moving to Dublin this fall for 9 months. He'll be busy doing his Fulbrighty stuff, and I'll be busy doing, well, whatever I want. What I want is to have access to some kind of ceramic studio.

We're both artists, but frankly, clay has a lot more accessories than painting. It's also dirtier, and needs lots of space. He can probably work wherever we live, but I'm going to need access to a ceramics studio.

I've done an internet search, and nothing seems to be popping up, other than 'paint your own' shops. From my other international travel experiences, I know that most communities have ceramic studios that are open to the public for a fee. . .

Does anyone know of communal spaces in Dublin, or schools that might be willing to work out a deal? I have an advanced degree, and plenty of teaching cred if that makes a difference. I'm not looking for anyone to fund me, I just want a place where I could rent/trade space to work and a kiln to fire in. If there are any filterites working in clay in Dublin, your expertise is greatly appreciated!

I think Galway might be a much better bet for this sort of thing.

If you don't get an answer here perhaps you could call one of the art colleges or even someone at the Arts Council's offices and see if they can help.

Hey Dirtmonster!

Check out Ceramics Ireland - looks like an extremely helpful journal, with links to courses and other Irish Potters.

The Crafts Council of Ireland might be another place to look - they might even make you an honorary member!
