Thanks to the support of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland, Na Píobairí Uilleann are delighted to announce an uilleann pipe making mentoring programme. The programme will provide one-to-one mentoring to emerging pipe makers over an intensive one-week period.
The mentoring programme will take place between September 2020 and February 2021. Na Píobairí Uilleann will take into account all COVID-19 guidelines from HSE/Government.
The programme is named in honour of Leo Rowsome, uilleann piper, uilleann pipes teacher, and master uilleann pipes maker whose work continues to provide inspiration and set an example of excellence to pipe makers today. 20th September 2020 will be the 50th anniversary of his death.
