We have just spent the past week in the company of a group of wonderful feltmakers fro Hungary who have been visiting Ireland as guests of Feltmakers Ireland. They have such a long tradition of feltmaking with influences from all parts of eastern Europe and western Asia. We hope that the Irish Hungarian Exchange project will continue for many years to come, you can read more about the Exchange in our next Magazine. Carmen Sanchez is bringing Hungary’s most famous master feltmaker Istvan Vadik to Co Carlow to give a workshop in October, this is a great opportunity to work with a true felt master – more details on “Other Workshop” page.
Come and join us with our guests from Hungary. We are having an open meeting in Kilkenny on Thursday 25th August in the castle yard at 11am – 12.30. ‘Crafted Conversation’ will give everyone an opportunity to learn about the ancient tradition of feltmaking in Hungary. We are also holding an open day at our studio in the Phoenix Park in Dublin on Saturday 27th August from 1-4pm
