Since then, that passion has turned into a lifestyle; we are holding Woolly Gatherings, a collaboration of Fibre artists, where we all teach different aspects from traditional cable knitting to fancy and stylized crocheting, all kinds of felting techniques, dying workshops, spinning and practical workshops like how to read a pattern or use a sewing machine…

Wool Finch Studio started off as a supply shop supporting the Woolly Gatherings. Now it has branched out into a separate business, still supplying high quality materials to crafters and artists alike.

And all of this is happening in the beautiful hills of Co. Clare...

Thank you for visiting!
