Ireland Through the Makers Lens

Ireland Through the Makers Lens

A fiber-infused, craft-focused journey to the Emerald Isle.

 

Our 10-night/11-day trip will start in Dublin, the country’s vibrant capital city. Then we’ll explore the gentle, interior countryside and wind our way across to the wild Atlantic coast – and even hop over to the island of Inisheer! Along the way, we’ll meet some of Ireland's most influential fiber folks - teachers, designers, dyers and doers - and hear about the current struggle to keep Irish wool production alive. We'll also meet and spend time with other types of Irish makers, visit historic sites, enjoy farm-to-table venues, and stay in a variety of Irish accommodations, from lavish country houses to cozy inns and sophisticated, metropolitan hotels. Might we knit in pubs while sharing a pint, taking in some traditional music and checking out the local craic? Absolutely! It’s going to be a grand time. We can’t wait to share it with you!
