29 Jan Workshop and studio update from Clasheen!
Belated happy new year from Clasheen!
It’s been a crazy couple of months since I last posted here. A bad cold over the new year period has meant that’s it’s taken me until now to fully catch up with everything but an upgraded broadband service means that online paperwork and updating things should definitely be easier from now onwards. There’s no point stressing in things that I haven’t managed to get done, from now on I’m only looking forward! In brief, since the end of November I set up and manned a double stand at the National Crafts & Design Fair, jointly organised (with my good buddy Ariane Tobin, jeweller) and participated in the FORM Designmade in Carlow Christmas shop, the house is currently ongoing some much needed upgrading, my online workshops are going really well so I need to set aside time each day to answer questions and give feedback, I’ve already facilitated 4 hands on workshops at Clasheen since the beginning of January and the third running of my foundation eco printing online workshop launched earlier today! Phew!!!
I’m thrilled with the feedback I’ve been getting from past or current online and person to person workshop participants. If you’d like to join me over the course of a 6 week period the third running of ‘Eco printing, an intensive foundation for successful results’ is now open for registration. The course actually starts on 27th February giving everyone plenty of time to get organised and the class content will be available online for students for 6 months from the start date.
For those of you wishing to follow along on a more regular basis I always post daily studio updates (with plenty of pictures!) to my Facebook business page. I really urge you to join me there online if you would like to have a more personal and interactive experience!
I’ve also updated my workshop page this morning, next post I’ll expand further on both the residential workshops I’m facilitating this year, the Irish felting and eco printing retreat and my class at the Geelong Fibre Forum. Until then, adieu.
