Joan Carey will provide a Wet Felting workshop demonstrating the basic principles of working with natural fibres. You will learn a new skill and create your own beret hat… your very own piece of wearable art. Bring own towel and an empty spray bottle if you have one. Materials provided.
"I work mainly with organic merino wools, high quality silks and natural fibres, designing my own patterns , while using my own blend of custom dyes, in the Japanese art of Nuno felt."
Joan Carey is a designer maker living along the stunning but
rugged coastline of Donegal where she draws much of her inspiration.
Where best known for her silk nuno-felt special occasion pieces, Joan also has a wonderful merino wool day-wear collection of neck collars, many combined with hand-dyed Italian silk strands, lace and other fibres.
