I'm Pat Foudy and I live in Inagh Co.Clare.
I started Woodturning in 2004, by completing a course in the Community College in Ennis with Joe O Neill. I was hooked before the course was over.
Soon after I joined the Limerick Chapter of the Irish Woodturning Guild, who have monthly meetings on the last Thursday of the month from September to June.
In addition to this Pat also completed with some well known Irish and some International Woodturners.
Patrick's signature piece is the horseshoe clock, combining his passion for Woodturning and love of horses.
I make bowls, boxes, lamps, twist pens, spinning tops, hollow forms, wine bottle stoppers, scoops and goblets
Using mainly native Irish woods such as Ash, Oak, Beech, Sycamore, Yew, Holly, Apple, Cherry, Bog Oak, and Walnut.
Patrick also participates in a craft fair in Ballyvaughan every Sunday from Easter to the October Bank Holiday weekend from 10am to 6pm.
Patrick's excellent craftmanship is stocked in Craftworks a craftshop on Parnell street in Ennis. Which is a co-op showcasing numerous arts and crafts people's work.
