ALL WORKSHOPS ARE STARTING AGAIN FROM SEPTEMBER ONWARDS. NEW DATES ARE ADDED.
WE WILL ABIDE BY GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES.
The workshops are relaxing, full of fun and cover a range of basket weaving techniques. They offer space to allow yourself to be immersed into the weaving and learning new skills.
A light lunch and materials are included in each workshop price. There will be tea and snacks available all day too.
10am. -5pm. each day
All workshops start at 10 am. and will finish around 5 pm. each day. Finishing time can vary and depends on when your basket is finished.
All workshops are held in the community hall in our beautiful Killoscully village, Newport, co. Tipperary.
