ABOUT

A little bit about the little shop of wonders that is Anchor Crafts

THE ANCHOR CRAFTS STORY

Anchor Crafts was set up in 2000, as I always had the drive and ambition to open my very own craft shop. 

The excitement of opening the door to the public was immense and exciting. 

I have a love for crafts and in particular art. This was a stepping stone to showcasing my own works. Im so influenced by the beauty of the Kilrush area and in particular the west coast of Clare. I work on oils, acrylic, watercolours and in recent times have taken to the process of encaustic art, which involves manipulating wax around a board to create a priceless one-off piece. 

I also make polymer jewellrey and love designing pieces to enhance my customers' requests. 

Outside of Anchor Crafts, I am a member of the Kilrush Art Group. I'm the Lifeboats Operations Manager at the Kilrush RNLI station based on the River Shannon for the past 24 years. 

I find it very rewarding and a great organisation to be involved with in the community.
