The Art Hand is a custom-built art school located near Bunmahon on the Waterford coast in Ireland. We are situated in an area of great natural beauty called The Copper Coast.
Our workshop and studio space is well equipped, warm and bright. All the materials, art supplies, tools and equipment needed are close at hand. The building is broken into three main sections, the art room, the tool room and the tech room. We can cater for groups of all ages and abilities and our facility is wheelchair friendly throughout.
The Art Room; The main space for training, classes and events. A simple open well-lit area with wall to wall shelves for our massive stock of art materials. There are sturdy tables and a toilet and shower next door to the art room.
Air B&B Loft; We have a small loft above the main art room with spectacular views over our roof garden and the coastline beyond. There are two single beds in this quirky space ideal as an artists retreat. We can also provide you with all daily meals if you require.
The Tool Room; A training shop, a collaborative workshop for Stained Glass, Mosaic, Ceramics and Sculpture, complete with all basic tools, equipment and materials. Basic tools and equipment for wood, stone and steel. The main central workbench in this room is 10 foot by 4 foot and is very sturdy.
The Tech Room; Our small centre of technology with Broadband and Printing Facilities. This is where we do Video Editing, Photoshop and Digital Art.
The Sunken Garden; Just outside the double doors of The Tool Room lies The Sunken Garden. The space is like a miniature amphitheatre with concrete steps and seats. A place to relax, and take a breather or a place to Experiment. A metal rebar structure is in place as the skeleton of a Sculpture that will be created over the years.
Beyond The Art Hand; Explore the surrounding coastline by foot, bike or even kayak. Experience the wild open Irish countryside and be inspired.

A reasonably priced minibus is available locally if people want to go for a night out or for a specific field trip.
