Artworks makes TV appearance - Feb 2011
Artworks was invited by Ireland AM to show the audience how pottery makes a great family activity. At the beginning of the February mid-term break, we brought some kids and some clay into the TV3 studio and gave a short demonstration of the journey of clay. Alan was well impressed!

Team Mars plays clay charades!
Mars Ireland enjoyed a great day of pottery on a recent team building outing. Rather than visit our studio, the Artworks crew brought the pottery activity to their venue choice - Carton House in Leixlip. The beautiful Georgian hotel was the perfect setting for some very interesting "clay confections" from the group. The company had decided to opt for our Clay Charades game where teams battle to sculpt images representing chosen categories.....Among the inventive results was a "Black Swan" (film title) and Crown (Band with one word name - Queen)!
