Exciting Plans to put in the Diary

The play day scheduled for next Saturday has been postponed – we will post information about the new date soon.

 

 

PLAY DAY – Saturday October 1st. 10.00 – 17.00

Join us for a day of shared ideas while working together. The plan is that everyone works on their own felt piece in a shared space. While there are no tutors there will be lots of people who can offer advice and share ideas with. It’s a great opportunity to work on a large piece that may not fit on your table at home. Bring all own feltmaking materials and equipment and a packed lunch – there is no charge and we will provide the venue and the company. The location is Palmer Hall, Rathdown School, Glenageary, Co. Dublin.

Space is limited so you need to let Barbara Tidey know if you would like to join us –  tideyb@gmail.com
