 Description: 

Join us at Thoor Ballylee tower for a fun-filled day of learning through embroidery! We’ll be learning basic embroidery stitches and techniques suitable for beginners or those wanting to brush up on their skills. We’ll also be taking a look at crewel embroidery and candlewick embroidery. Feel free to bring any materials you may want to experiment with, however there will be plenty of materials provided. Look forward to discussions of Lily and Lolly Yeats in the new studio space at Yeats tower, talk of fiber art through the years, take a tour of the tower, and leave with a beautiful embroidered piece that will be your first of many to come.

Please note:

This class is limited to 10 people, please book early to avoid disappointment

Materials are provided for all workshops and classes. Tea, coffee, and a light lunch provided.

Deposits equal to half the price are essential in order to hold your place in these small workshops/classes. There is a deposit option as well as a full price option listed in the Workshops & Classes storefront.

Participants will meet at Irish Fibre Crafters, the Square, Ardrahan. Then we will be car pooling to the tower.

Public transport: the 51 bus (Cork/Galway) stops right in front of the Irish Fibre Crafters studio just about every hour, daily. Ardrahan train station (with occasional times) is a 5 minute drive from the studio, but it is a road with no good verge, so please let us bring you from/to the station rather than attempt the walk.

Driving? Irish Fibre Crafters is just 5 minutes off of the Ardrahan exit
