****Deadline approaching *****For anyone who is interested in Dagmar Binder’s workshop, the deadline for applications is next Friday 11th May, the application form and details are on our website. Dagmar is a very talented and inspiring teacher and we are delighted to have her – she will be giving a talk about her work which will be open to all members. The workshop and talk take place in Collins Barracks in Dublin at the end of June.
Sunday 13th of May is a very exciting day for us. We are hosting our second ever Felt Fashion Show and have received some spectacular entries. On the same day we are holding our AGM (very brief meeting) in the Church of Ireland Parish Centre in Lucan. It is always a wonderful opportunity to meet up with old and new felting friends, eat cake and get the latest news. There will be stalls from the Wool Initiative, the Yarn Room and all the way from Prato in Italy the DHG (Dyeing House Group) http://www.dhgshop.it/ – they are bring a huge range of wool and silk from Italy, the prices are really good (especially as we don’t have to pay P&P and there is the advantage that you can see and feel the fibres), they are also a discount for Feltmakers Ireland members on the day.
Future workshops to look out for are a series of Recession Sessions in our studio (Basic Feltmaking, Needle Felting and Dyeing) – watch the website for more details. Judit Pocss coming in September and Jeanette Appleton will be giving a two day workshop with us at the end of October. Yippee!
I hope we will see you all very soon,
Feltmakers Ireland Committee
