Felting workshop, Kerry

Felting workshop

Life-transforming ideas have always come to me through books. --bell hooks 

Learn the easy and transformative process of felting, one of the oldest textiles in the world.  With wool, warm water, and a little soap and energy, you can create all kinds of wonderful items.  We will focus on the process of making felt and then felt book covers that can be used as journals, sketchbooks, or photo albums.  They make a wonderful gift, but you may want to keep it for yourself!  Materials provided on the day, but space is limited so please book in advance.  All abilities welcome, but preferably age 14 and up. 087-9111793.

Time:  Wednesday, April 27th 1-4pm, at An Diseart (next to St Mary’s Church)
Price: €25, plus materials fee
