January 2011 – get felting

Our annual Basic and Beyond Workshop is nearly upon us! Do you want to refresh your skills? Have you been hearing the term”nuno” but not been sure what it was? Would you love a whole day to yourself in the company of like-minded folks, doing fun stuff together? Then here comes your chance.

We are hosting a one day workshop aimed at new felters and people who want to renew and refresh their skills. Flat, 3D and nuno felting will all be taught, giving a basis from which you can expand your ability. This is always a fun filled day with good friends and even good baked goods!

The workshop takes place be in Lucan at The Church of Ireland Parish Centre on Saturday the 22nd. An application form can be downloaded from the workshop page. There is some off road parking at the venue and even a lovely café next door. Feltmakers Ireland will provide all the fibre and fabric for the day as part of the cost, which is €85 for non-members and €75 for fully paid up members.

Note: We have extended the deadline for applications and  there are still have a few places left for the workshop so if you are interested give Maureen a call on 087 996 1033.


Sunday Session – our January session will be on Sunday the 16th and we will be looking at some of the techniques that Leiko showed us when she was in Dublin.  The studio may not be ready by then (we had burst pipes in the big snow) so keep an eye on this space for an update about the venue. Please bring along a basic feltmaking kit and some fine merino.
