After 5 years, the Bone Carving Studio and Gallery has closed its doors so that I can concentrate on the new project in my life - my first baby due in a few weeks. Thank you to everyone who supported the Bone Carving Studio in the last few years. I enjoyed meeting and working with everyone who walked through the doors.

Best wishes,

Bone Carving Classes

Looking for something different to do in Galway?

The Bone Carving Studio and Gallery in Galway offers the only bone carving classes in Ireland. At a one-day class you’ll create your own bone carving from start to finish.


What's involved

At a one-day bone carving class you will design and make your own piece out of cow bone (sourced from local butchers, already cleaned and dried ready for you to carve!).

Most people make a pendant strung on waxed cotton cord (If you'd like it on silver it's €10 extra for the chain).

Alternatively you can turn your piece into a brooch, keyring or stand-alone sculpture. If you'd like to make something else ask me when you're booking and I'll see what we can do!

You'll do all the carving yourself using a variety of power and hand tools...and of course I'll help you along the way.

Whether you're a visitor or a native, a bone carving class is the perfect activity for a rainy Galway day....

...it's also a unique gift, whether you give a gift voucher for a class or you make something special for someone special!
