I provide online courses that you can take at your own pace. I also run live online classes as well as in-person workshops for both individuals and groups.

 STUDIO IN PERSON WORKSHOPS

Hand Spinning and Hand Weaving workshops in the studio will continue from April 10th 2021, in accordance with Covid Guidelines throughout Ireland.  Some of you have booked prior to April 10th 2021, and that is fine, as I will remain in touch with you through email. 

You may be coming to weaving for the first time or developing existing skills, either way it may be worthwhile to engage through email at first to inform the direction you would like to take.  If so feel free to email me at info@ainedunneweaver.com

All materials and equipment are supplied for these workshops.  Check course content, dates and booking information below.
