TWO WORKSHOPS with overnight stay 29-30/09/18
Denim and Linen Pouch Workshop (Saturday)
Come make a fun machine-sewn denim and linen pouch with Jude Smith, here at the Mourne Creative Workshop.
Jude will guide you through the process of making and designing your own cotton and linen pouch, from inserting the zip, to attaching webbing for a handle, with the idea of making more at home for your own creative enterprise.
These are fun handy little bags to store your phone, cash and small bits of make, or as a travel pouch for passports, glasses, make-up and jewellery.
The Workshop runs from 10-4pm.
The day includes a hearty Mourne lunch to include GF brownies and lemon and marscapone mini cakes.
Blacksmithing Workshop (Sunday)
Don your leather Apron and Gloves and come take part in the is exciting heritage craft of Blacksmithing up here in the Mournes. Niall McGinley will guide you through the basic tool-making skills required for blacksmithing and then you can use your very own tools to create other instruments for the home fire. The blacksmithing workshop will take place over at the stables beside the cottages, with lunch in Bearnagh Cottage from 1-2pm.
All materials and equipment are included.
Appropriate footwear is required.
This Workshop is for adults only.
