For our 2 Handsculpted House courses in 2024 The Hollies team will travel up to An Gabhal in South County Wicklow, not far from Tullow, to teach the courses there, linking up with this inspiring young community in a beautiful setting,

Intro to the project

“Welcome to An Gabhal – Enchanted forest farm film garden studio, community and sanctuary. 

Holistic, artistic, scholastic and fantastic, we are a diverse group of individuals trying to learn to live in balance with nature while pursuing a shared ethos of empathy, mutual being and personal growth. Built in the 1720’s, An Gabhal is a stunning granite farmyard rooted in the remote foothills of South West County Wicklow. Surrounded by pastoral farmland, a wooded bog to the south, and the Wicklow Mountains to the north. We feel well placed to realise our vision of an intuitive, creative and intentional community and culture worthy of our ancestors and descendants, while providing sanctuary and spark to some well worthy souls along our way.”
