OCTOBER 13th – 19th, 2019
DINGLE PENINSULA - IRELAND
------

«A collective of warm, exuberant, colourful and extremely helpful friends. The kind of friends who you may not see from end of the year to the next, but if you met on the street, it would feel like only yesterday when you last spoke» - Tom Kelly

This year FWS takes us along the most southerly route of the Wild Atlantic Way, to the ancient kingdom of Kerry.

The Feckin workshop was created by Sean and Kate with two intentions; Knowledge and Craic.

Sean and Kate wanted to provide a photography and film workshop for folks in the wedding industry that wasn’t just fluff and a sales pitch for the speakers.  That wasn’t just about shooting a pretty portfolio. Sean and Kate wanted to show that if you run an efficient business that you can make a profit, have a healthy work-life balance an still have time to be personally creative. They wanted to provide core skills like implementing business software systems, knowing the importance of in person sales and workflow management. They also, wanted to impress that if you took care of yourself mentally that your business/life would flourish.

The heart of this workshop though, is in it’s connection and bonds made with others, ourselves and the land. The connections made at previous editions have always been the most rewarding part of the workshop.

Dingle has long been known as a hide away for artists, musicians, quirky characters. Its most famous resident after all is a dolphin, called Fungi. Where better to let your creative juices flow.

Each morning we will gather in  Ballintaggart House, a 300 year old Country Manor overlooking Dingle Bay. Learning from the daily Cainteoirs (Speakers). While the vibrant village will set the scene for some of the cosy evening fire side talks, in some of its traditional Irish pubs.

The Dingle Peninsula itself is a playground of magnificent coastal scenery. Where the sandy beaches and rugged cliffs of the Atlantic ocean weave seamlessly together with an ancient landscape of prehistoric ring forts and abandoned villages. From Dingle town in the south west to Mount Brandon in the North East.

Hosted just outside of Dingle, a colourful fishing village which is nestled beneath The Conor Pass, Irelands highest mountain pass.

What’s the craic like?

The price of the workshop is €1,950 which includes: five nights accommodation, welcome dinner, four days of talks and live shoots, one free afternoon to go wild in Dingle, three nights of fire side sessions and goodbye party, There may be pizza, there may be not!  Breakfast and lunch are included! We figured you would all be dancing on tables by the time dinner comes along so you can sort yourselves out!

*Limited seats and tickets are only refundable if you find a person to fill your spot.

“This workshop is a community of people who will help lift you up, it’s creative challenges to push you out of your comfort zone, it’s reconnecting with why you’ve chosen to do this, it’s finding your own voice and style. I think The Feckin Workshop has set the standard crazy high for me to ever attend another workshop!”
