Post Colony was a project which explored the natural, industrial, colonial and heritage histories of Killarney National Park, Co. Kerry.
Initiated and devised by Irish artist Gareth Kennedy the Post Colony workshop consisted of ten days in Kilarney National Park, Co. Kerry. Collaboratively working alongside seven other people from various disciplines, instructed and taught by fifth generation woodwright and project mentor Eoin Donnelly. Myself and six other participants made one-legged stools from rhododendron and oak using a pedal run pole lathe and took part in a traditional charcoal burn of rhododendron.
The project was documented by Gareth Kennedy on a 16mm bolex camera and photographed by Brian Cregan, as part of Kennedy's arts practice a film and photo documentation will be exhibited along side the stools.
