The Woollinn Workshops!

I’m excited about Woollinn Dublin!

After the success of YarnFolk Festival of Wool in August last year, it’s clear we need more woolly events on this island 🙂  Ironically, it will take me as long to get to Woollinn as it does to Edinburgh Yarn Fest (door to door) 😂 😂 😂 😭. This island is so poorly connected. I think if you’re coming from anywhere else the Woollinn location is great, right next to the airport.

So! I was dithering and dithering about which days I would go, what I would sign up to. I have finally registered, so go get yours! In addition to the workshops, I am very excited to see Kate Davies talk about her work and her new book: Handywoman.

Handy Woollinn Workshop Guide

I found it hard to understand the workshop schedule since it’s just a list.

So I made this handy-dandy table if you were curious too. I don’t know if the schedule is subject to change, but is up to date as of 17 March 2018.

  1. I’m in California, so…not happening, but it sounds wonderful. What a terrific bunch of teachers!!! I was just delighted in Ireland in 2016 to finally find yarn shops that sold actual wool—not acrylic, which was pretty much all I’d found on our last trip in 2011. There was a great wee (very wee) shop in Derry that was just packed full of real wool, and a lovely one in east Belfast. Some day I’ll go yarn shopping in the south also. Enjoy! 🙂
