Wat je gaat doen

Dolly and Molly, our fiberglass sheep "mascots" will greet you upon your arrival at Irish Fibre Crafters in Ardrahan village. Our spinning & weaving studio with craft gallery is spacious and light but also cozy; with spinning wheels, beautiful old wooden looms, and baskets of sheep and alpaca wool. Your host Sandra will start you on your fibre craft experience by chatting about the varied breeds of sheep in Ireland as you enjoy feeling the differing textures and softness of their wool. Next, Sandra will demonstrate traditional hand spinning and you can try it for yourself on one of the spinning wheels!

A weaving demonstration will follow on one of three floor looms in the studio, and you may also want to give weaving a try. We'll then have a short tea and coffee break, and you can wander around our craft gallery, filled with unique items made by local crafters from Irish wool and Irish alpaca. To finish up you will try your hand at some simple needle felting, creating a small sheep to take home, out of real Irish wool.

We hope that you will pay us a visit and experience these genuine Irish fibres and crafts.

I am a hand spinner and weaver and have always been passionate about wool and its uses. In order to share my skills and passion, I recently opened a working studio and craft gallery where I use and promote Irish wool and alpaca fibre.

Sandra‘s class was the highlight of my trip to Ireland. I’ll start by saying that I’m very fond of learning, particularly of lost crafts, like spinning and dying local Irish wool. I was very fortunate to take this course with Sandra, she is extremely creative, has a lovely energy and really takes the time to teach you the art of spinning and looming. We broke for tea, and had a chance to discuss some of the books we were both familiar with on arts out of Appalachia. I work with a cheese maker not far from her gallery and workshop, he came by and was so impressed with the fine craftsmanship of the wool textiles that were on display as well as the numerous looms. I really can’t wait to get back and visit Sandra again! If you are fortunate enough to take this workshop you will definitely not regret it!

We arrived early, which was no problem for Sandra, and she was a very gracious host and educator. Sandra was extremely positive and encouraging, which made the new experience enjoyable and fun. We felt fully immersed in the experience, and the shop/workspace was very homey and cute. Sandra also let us keep the wool we spun, and gave excellent recommendations for lunch after. Definitely would recommend this to any visitor, as it was a highlight throughout our time in Ireland and an easy drive from Galway or Shannon.
