About Us

Formed in 2018 The Blackwater Makers brings together the very best of unique and excellent craft and art work from the Fermoy and surrounding Blackwater hinterland. All our studios are based in and around Fermoy and the Blackwater Valley.

Our Arts Center

We are relocating. We would like to thank Cork County Council, Avondhu Blackwater Partnership CLG and Synergy Credit Union, along with our craft shop customers and visitors to the Arts Centre for all their support through the time we have been open. We look forward to seeing you all once again at our new premises in the near future.

All Vouchers are valid and can be redeemed by contacting the artists directly. Check our Facebook page for more information and updates.
