If you’re curious about sheep and the different varieties of Irish wool, this event is perfect for you! Witness the fascinating reactions of various Irish wool types as they are needle and wet felted. For the adventurous, there will be opportunities to craft felt samples using different kinds of Irish Wool.

Now, you can learn the not-so-secret techniques behind this incredible craft. Come to Feltmakers Ireland’s Open Day during August Craft Month to explore the captivating process of transforming fuzzy wool into strong felt using water, soap, and the power of your own hands.”
