2015 – a year of learning & creativity

We are planning a schedule of exciting workshops for the year ahead.

 

Our annual Basic & Beyond workshop is taking place on Saturday 24th January. Many of you who have taken this workshop know that it is a very exciting, busy and fun filled day. There are still some laces left so if you know anyone who might be interested please contact Suzanne on 085 114 6391. The full day workshop costs €65 (members) and €75 (non members) .

Priority for all places on workshops (apart from the Basic & Beyond) is give to members of Feltmakers Ireland. If we don’t fill the workshops (very unlikely from past experience) we then offer places to non members. Membership costs just €25 per year and as well as workshops you are eligible to take part in exhibitions and other events and you will receive a copy of our Magazine quarterly in the post. Membership runs from Jan-Jan so if you haven’t yet renewed now is the time.
