We are thrilled to welcome Charity Van Der Meer to Ireland in September. Charity will be giving a three day workshop in felt garment design from 30th Sept to 2nd October. In order to maximise the time we have with Charity we have decided to hold this workshop in the beautiful facility of An Grianain in Co Louth. We will start on Friday morning and work through until early on Sunday afternoon. An Grianain is only 45mins north of Dublin airport but far enough away from your day to day routine so that participants can relax and enjoy the experience without having to drive home every day. We have received generous funding from the Crafts Council which means we can offer this workshop for half what it would otherwise cost. Application forms are available below and names will be chosen (out of the hat) by the end of April. A non refundable deposit of €50 should be sent with the application form (balance of €200 will be due two weeks before the workshop). This workshop would not be suitable to absolute beginners.
Charity studied design in the UK and lives in Holland. Her beautiful felt designs have been seen on catwalks around Europe. Some of us met her at various international felt events and were really impresses by her warmth and her talent. Check out her websitewww.sharit.net
