Big Mountain Productions are working with the Crafts Council of Ireland on a new series for
RTÉ that will crown one amateur craftsperson, the winner of Mastercrafter.
There are six shows in the series. The first five shows will place 15 apprentices on an
intensive two-week residential course in the discipline of their choice: Ceramics, Glass,
Metal (blacksmithing), Textiles (weaving) or Wood (wood turning) under the expert
guidance of the relevant Master of Craft.
A judging panel will adjudicate, reducing 15 apprentices down to five allowing just
one apprentice from each discipline to take a place in the final five.
Show six; the grand finale will be recorded later this summer with the winner of
Mastercrafter announced then.
If you are passionate, creative, hard-working and you feel you have real potential to
make it in the craft world, then Big Mountain Productions would love to hear from you.

The exhibit is mostly based on the famine locally, with many objects from famine times on display. Cllr Seanie Lonergan wishes to thank all the people that came to his aid with artifacts and information. Without these people and the help from his friends this exhibit would not be possible.This exhibition is the first of its type to be hosted by the Craft Granary and Cahir.
