Artist Bio

Kathleen Walsh has always loved wood. It gives so much when the grain, faults and textures are revealed as it’s pared away. She grew up in a woodworking family in Wexford and her passion for woodturning began back then, but moving from home and without space for a lathe she didn’t do any turning for almost 30 years.

She studied Sculpture at WIT, then trained to teach Art & Design in Limerick school of Art, and taught Art at second level for a few years. She currently works at The Institute of Art, Design & Technology as a Model-making & Design Technician.

Recently she dusted off the old lathe and gave it a go again. That was it, she was once again hooked, and with knowledge of more modern model-making techniques and materials accumulated over the years she realised that combining these with wood makes woodturning even more exciting.
