Welcome to Feltmakers Ireland, the national Guild of Felt Makers.
Our Guild is a voluntary organization with members throughout Ireland. We cater for everyone with an interest in felt-making, both amateur and professional crafts people. Feltmakers Ireland was founded in 2003 in response to a growing interest in felt-making. We try to cater to all types of felt- making.
The AGM of the organisation is held every year in May, when we also sell fibre and supplies.
Feltmakers Ireland is, in itself, a member of the Crafts Council of Ireland.
