Open Studio | Sun 11 Aug, 12noon – 4pm

Talk and demo of how raw fleece is processed to wool. I will talk through and demonstrate each step of the process, and there will be wool available for purchase (cash, PayPal, bank transfer). Visitors can ‘have a go’ at a number of the steps, if they would like to, under supervision.

Tea, coffee, homemade Irish breads and cake available free and on tap during visits (current food hygiene of 5).

Artists’ studios are a place to visit to sneak a peak ‘behind the scenes’ of the Artist and Maker. Free Admission.
