There are two fabulous felt events this week – our annual participation the the Knitting & Stitching Show in the RDS starting on Thursday morning November 10th. Come and visit the Feltmakers Ireland stand where there will be continuous demonstrations, an exhibition of felt vessels made from rare and native wool and lots of information about felt activities. We are teaching in the Learning Curve making beautiful felt brooches designed by Holly Angle.
The other big event of the week is the launch of our first book “Profiles in Felt”, a collection of the work and stories of 44 feltmakers in Ireland. It is a beautiful publication and has been made possible by the generosity of the Crafts Council of Ireland as part of the celebration of the Year of Craft 2011. The book is being launched by Sonya Lennon (Stylist, TV presenter and CCoI Board Member) on Friday 11/11/11 at 6.30 in the Culture Box in Temple Bar in Dublin. If you are interest in felt please come along and join the celebration – and here is your invitation
