JULY 27,28 and 29, 2015

Feltmakers Ireland are thrilled to host a Masterclass workshop led by Nancy Ballesteros, from Treetops Fibres in Perth, Australia. If you aren’t familiar with Treetops, do have a look at their website. The colours are magnificent. Nancy is offering a two and a half day workshop titled Abstract Aprons.

Over the workshop we will develop our  patterns and create beautiful wrap-arounds using superfine merino, silk hankies and silk fabric. The materials for this workshop are not included in the cost of the class. Nancy will bring her magnificent fibres and silks for you to purchase, or you are free to bring your own. Be aware however that if you wish to have results like Nancy’s, with the correct sizing and shrinkage, you need to bring the correct micron fibres. Five designs are on offer and the materials from Nancy will vary from approximately €40 to €90 per garment.

We are able to offer this  workshop for a wonderful price of only€140 for fully paid up members of Feltmakers Ireland, or €170 for non-members. As our guild exists mainly to support our members, places are allocated by lottery among members first. Any remaining places are then allocated by a second lottery among non-member applicants.

The workshop will be held in the Church of Ireland Parish Centre in Lucan, Co Dublin. Starting Monday the 27 th, 1:30 to 4:30. Tuesday and Wednesday will go from 10:00 until 5:00.
