We are planning to hold a series of “Play Days” at the Inchicore Social Club, the next two will be on Saturdays 24th March and the 21st April. These are days when feltmakers can work together on their own projects. The Club is an ideal venue to work on larger projects that won’t fit on your kitchen table. There will be a small charge for the hire of the hall (depends on numbers but max €10). Places will be limited so if you are interested in joining in please email email@example.com
Our next Sunday Session will be held in our studio in the Phoenix Park on the 11th March – we will be looking at felting using an embellishing machine.
We are also holding a two day complex bag workshop in the same venue on Sat/Sun March 31st and April 1st. The tutor is the Hungarian feltmaker Gabi McGrath, participants need to bring their own materials but there will be Hungarian merino batts available to buy on the day. You can download the application form here Complex Bag application
In June we are delighted to welcome the German feltmaker Dagmar Binder to Ireland to give a two day workshop working on her wonderful 3D Sculptural felt. The workshop will be held in the National Museum of Decorative Arts in Collins Barracks on the 29th/30th June. Applications forms are more details available soon

We hope to hold these day long working days regularly. If anyone is interested in taking part please let me know – firstname.lastname@example.org. The days are very informal, everyone works on their own but it’s great working with other people and you can learn a lot just by seeing what everyone is doing.

We are holding our next Sunday Session in the studio in the Phoenix Park on the 12th February from 10.30-13.00. Natzaret Sindreu will be demonstrating her skills with needlefelting. Natzaret “sculpts” amazing pieces with just some wool fibre and felting needles. Everyone is welcome.
As Valentines Day is very close Natzaret hinted that there may be a love theme to next Sunday…
