Joseph Walsh Studio & Workshop Tour
Time: 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Joseph Walsh (born in 1979) founded his studio and workshop in 1999 in Co. Cork, Ireland. He is a designer maker, realising One-of-a-Kind and limited edition pieces. Walsh’s creative approach reflects his appreciation of nature and also his desire to engage the user with visual and tactile forms.
The great understanding and sympathetic use of the material, the intimate relationship between the process of finding forms and creating structures, and the continuity and resolve from the concept stage to the making process define his studio and work today. Walsh’s workshop, employing an international team, engages in resolving technical challenges as his work becomes more complex. They explore new materials while continuing to further the possibilities of engaging with wood. The work of the Studio continues to advance skills, inspire an innovative response and challenge existing practice in achieving the ambitious pieces realised.
Joseph Walsh was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by University College Cork in 2015 in recognition of his contribution to design.
Joseph Walsh’s work can be found in many significant international Museum and Private Collections and is regularly exhibited at major art and design fairs.
