Successful eco printing basics, an intensive 2 day workshop on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th March 2018 from 10am to 4.30pm, full details and to book please follow this link.

The first online eco printing workshops of 2018 started on Monday 22nd January!

The introduction lesson of ‘Eco printing, an intensive foundation for successful results’ started on Monday 22nd January 2018 and every Friday for 6 weeks from 26th January a new module will be available for you to enjoy, read and work through in tandem with me and the other workshop participants. Registration for this workshop will stay open until Friday 3rd February for those who might like to join us. I am always happy to answer any questions about online classes via email but please check out these FAQ first as many of the most commonly asked questions are addressed here.

Following on from the foundation workshop ‘Eco printing beyond the basics, cellulose based fabric and up-cycled clothing’ also started on Monday 22nd January but this is not designed as a stand alone workshop. It is for students who have already completed the foundation workshop with me and open to a few other selected categories. So, if you have already participated in an extend length group class, textile retreat or minimum of three day private one on one session with me before and are wondering if it is suitable for you please send me an email so we can have a chat. Ignore the fact that the workshop appears to be closed for registration, if you are interested I will send you a personalised private link to join. I will not be repeating all the basics steps I have already covered in the foundation course and respectfully ask that you consider participating in the first workshop if you have not already done so. Thank you!

Customised workshops at Clasheen

Please email me to discuss your requirements if you are interested in a tailor made workshop at Clasheen. Classes may be organised in felting, eco printing or a combination of the two, often dates don’t get added here to the website because these small classes fill immediately. Simple shared accommodation may be organised on site or more glamorous accommodation is available locally. Collection and drop off to a bus or train is an added extra for those travelling without a car.
