And what better way to get going after the holidays than learning a new skill. There are still places available for our fabulous introduction to feltmaking class, Basic and Beyond. In this one day class you will learn all the basic skills of wet felting. You’ll learn how to make good felt, how to know

when a piece is well felted, how fibre from different breeds behaves, and then come away at the end of the day with a small 3D bag or bowl. All of your fibre is included in the cost, and you even should have enough left over to have a go at home!

The class is on January 23rd in Lucan and costs only €75. And if you’re a member of Feltmakers Ireland it’s even less.

Click on the link to download the application! We look forward to meeting you on the day.
