Workshops & Creative Classes
Feeling creative? Would you like to learn a new skill?
I run workshops and creative classes throughout the year in a variety of locations & schools across Ireland.
Teaching School Textiles
I teach Needle felting, which is 2D & 3D wool art and lampshade making classes to students from both the Home Economics & Art Departments in the schools across Ireland.
Currently the junior cycle has a strong link to “Recycle & Green” with an emphasis on sustainability, this is achieved by using hand dyed local sourced wool in the felting projects the students can create a wool picture that they can frame , or use this piece to make a cushion. Recently in Ardscoil Mhuire Limerick we did a demo felting workshop to show the kids how to make felted jewellery these workshops are showing the students new skills but also showing them how to make something functional.
With regards to the lampshade making classes we have done numerous different style workshops and classes from upcycling or creating your own fabrics, be this colour fabric painting, batiks or stencil printing fabrics for the lampshades
Teacher training also available kits and supplies are provided to the schools
The creative classes element of my business is my passion it is so rewarding, to see the students try new art forms, learn new life skills and use the creative process to express themselves but to trust their ideas and explore possibilities
