Clonakilty Makers Trail
A selection of those Clonakilty Makers

Clonakilty is famous for its vibrant creative scene and many Makers, Artists and Craftspeople call this super town home. This August, as part of Cork Craft Month 2020, the people at Green Dot - Irish Design Makers have put together a self-guided walking trail of studios and workshops in the heart of Clonakilty.

These range from artists' studios, chocolate makers, upholsterers, craft studios and many other interesting places and characters in between. 

This trail is a great chance to 'meet the maker' right where they feel most comfortable, in their workshop or studio and to get a proper feel for their work. Find out all the details here https://greendotdesignshop.com/pages/clonakilty-makers-trail
