The Tudor Artisan Hub, established by Linda Fahy in May 2014, is an independent eclectic collective of over 75 new, emerging and established artists, from Carrick-on-Suir, the Suir Valley Region and beyond. It is a true Aladdin’s Cave of creative treasures, with five rooms over two floors, brimming with unique ‘one-off’ handcrafted products in a space full of rustic appeal infused with timeless charm.
Over the years the Hub has evolved into a dynamic, enterprising Arts Community, supporting, promoting and networking with artists across multiple disciplines. It operates as a vital portal to many innovative, collaborative ventures in all the creative arts. The Hub offers a welcoming, safe space for the creative mind to exercise and provides opportunity, possibility and accessibility for people to take steps to try something new, be innovative and in do so can help one accomplish goals and fulfil dreams. We have an effectual, enterprising online presence and actively participate in art exhibitions and initiatives outside the Hub space to help our artists reach a wider audience.
Located at 42 Main Street, Carrick on Suir, housed in a former Technical Institute built circa 1910, this cultural gem is just steps from the Tudor Manor House, in the Ormond Castle Quarters along the Medieval Butler Trail, in Ireland’s Ancient East and a short stroll from the renowned River Suir Blueway.
The Tudor Artisan Hub is also nestled between two award-winning theatres, partnering and collaborating with both, linking the old-world charm of Brewery Lane Theatre and Arts Centre with the modern pulsating ritzy 360 seated Strand Theatre. Collectively these three Arts venues, all within close proximity to each other, showcase the very best of Irish Arts and Culture in theatre, musicals, music, arts, film, writing and crafts.
Perhaps there is nowhere in Ireland where one would find such excellence in the Arts Scene, let alone in a small market town like Carrick-on-Suir. Carrick-on-Suir is certainly a place with a thriving Arts Scene and a visit to the Tudor Artisan Hub is an absolute must for the culturally curious!
The Tudor Artisan Hub is also the satellite information centre for the Clancy Brothers Music & Arts Festival annually
