Craft Days

Beach Buddies runs special craft days at its two bases – one at Knockuskey Cottage, Niarbyl and the other in the south at The Bone Mill in Brewery Bay (close to the Shore Hotel). Sessions last for a maximum of two hours and everyone learns how to make a special item of their own from recycled and reclaimed items such as driftwood, sea glass and shells.
The charge is £10 per person, payable in advance. Sessions are restricted to 10 people. Children under 16 must be accompanied an adult. Sessions are indoors and go ahead whatever the weather.
