4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?

Adrian Wistreich, Ceramic Artist. After more than 20 years of corporate life in London, working as a publisher and research consultant, I left the rat-race to pursue my ambition of becoming an artist and teacher. I completed a diploma in Ceramics and Design at Hackney College of Art, London, moved to Kinsale with my family and set-up the M15343. My desire to teach comes from my experience as a communicator, I have learned to find and stimulate the artist in us all, regardless of our experience of art.

5. What is your most popular travel package and why?

One-day and weekend crafts courses at M15343, combined with local 5 star accommodation at Friars Lodge offer value for money, top quality and enormous fun.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?

I'd recommend M15343 to anyone interested in crafts. I did a week summer school from 10-5pm mon-fri in ceramics and pottery and had no idea what was involved. Had a great week though and made some great new friends. You can try and make anything your imagination allows so I would advise people to be as creative as they want! Thanks for a great week!!!
