  • Description


    Hi, I'm based on the west coast of county Clare, a lovely area with plenty beaches & great scenery. I've had the pleasure of being a workawayer around Europe, west Africa....so I'm inspired now to try my own project

    Newest project is a drift trike. I am looking for someone mechanical minded for this project.

    I have been making dragon fire staffs for any circus people interested in this type of thing.

    Mainly I am making musical instruments from recycled materials. Mostly propane tank drums which have a similar sound to the hang drum. I aim to make several in the next few months.
    I have also been building african harps & playing west African music for the last few years.

    I'd be looking for someone who knows how to use an angle grinder to remove the paint and do some cutting. It would make the the work easier for me.

    If you happen to be a native Spanish speaker that would be fantastic as i am currently learning spanish.

    I would love if there were any VIdeographer/ photographers out there to take some photos and videos

    I prefer to host people who are actually interested in what I'm doing, not just looking for a place to stay, but as a workawayer I have been in that situation myself. Just be honest about it, it will work out better for you!

    Any questions, do ask

    Look forward to meet you

    There is live music in the local pubs. It's a great place to meet locals, other musicians, dancers, have a few drinks.
    I can teach you some of the basics of gaeilge language, some Irish traditional tunes. You will learn how a tank drum is made including tuning, & play the finished tank drums.
    Clare is famous for scenery and music among other things. Many beaches, cliffs, lakes, hikes. Its beautiful
    If you like surfing, there is a big surf community in the area, and some of the best waves in the country. I have boards here to lend....

    If you'd like to help out using the power tools, (angle grinder etc.) Id like you to have insurance. As a workawayer, I have had accidents with these in other countries and I'm lucky I had insurance.
