From 4th December 2020
STAC is delighted to present After The Fall, an exhibition of contemporary Irish woodturning,
curated by Stephen O’Connell and kindly supported by DCCI and Tipperary County Council.
This exhibition represents a survey of the very best practitioners of this craft form, with a strong
emphasis on sculptural work. The selected artists/makers reflect a diverse range of methods and
material approaches, as well as enviable skill and invention, showcasing what is possible within
contemporary woodturning.
Woodturning historically has been viewed as a functional craft form, producing components for
other crafts and industries, as well as domestic objects such as bowls and vessels. However, since
the great American studio craft movement of the 1970s, its potential for producing sculptural
forms and being literally and metaphorically the fulcrum for a highly considered artistic practice
has grown exponentially.

Booking not essential however only 4 persons allowed in the gallery at any one time in line with
