Marie-Therese has always had a passion for the crafts. She spent many summers of her teenage and college years working in the Pine Forest Art and Craft Centre, Glencullen, Co. Dublin where she taught children and young adults all forms of craft and design skills. On attending the National College of Art and Design she obtained a 1st class degree in design specialising in Metals, with her note worthy collection "Wear me, See me, Play me". After college, she travelled to New Zealand and gained invaluable work experience with goldsmith Peter Deckers and with enamalist Sally Laing in Taranaki. MTW returned home to Ireland and moved to Kilkenny to continue her training in the D.C.C.O.I. Goldsmithing and Jewellery Skills course. She has worked with J.M.K. Goldsmiths for many years. In 2010 she established her own workshop and brand in Kilkenny and now has a workshop near Nenagh in Tipperary.
