Workshops run from 10am – 2pm, and are held in our craft studio on our family farm in Newtownmountkennedy, Co. Wicklow. For dates and availability, please click BOOK NOW at the bottom of the page.

Anything else I should know?

As the workshops are held on a working farm and include an outdoor element, participants will need to bring suitable clothing (e.g. wellies/boots, rain jacket, warm layers on colder days).

The workshops do consist of some outdoor elements in natural areas on uneven ground. The nature trail includes some slopes, and travels over small logs etc. and the nature trail and farm paths are not currently wheelchair accessible. However, workshops may be adapted to suit participants with additional physical needs and we ask you to please get in touch prior to booking to discuss your needs.

Group bookings

We offer a discount if you book 4+ places at any of our half-day workshops. We also take private group bookings (6 – 10 people), which are available on request, subject to availability, and transportation can also be arranged. For more information – please get in touch.
