The Arts Office are delighted to offer a wonderfully relaxing FELTMAKING WORKSHOP at Laois Arthouse Stradbally with textile artist Maria McGarry as part of the Laois Connects Programme 2021, on Tuesday 26th October, running from 2pm-4pm. Learn the technique of laying fibers of merino wool to create felt using soapy water and gentle rolling. Participants will connect with the tactile nature of the wool and gently transform it into felt fabric as a blossoming felt flower. The process is fun whilst also meditative. Maria McGarry is a textile artist and crafter for over 25 years in quilting, feltmaking, fiber and paper craft. She has studied at NCAD and studied textile art in Crawford College Cork, Free Event – Booking essential – Limited numbers – Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place or contact 057 8664033/13.
