Introducing Textile Workshop Dublin!

Hello and welcome to the lovely world of Textile Workshop Dublin!

We offer contemporary textile and craft workshops that are designed to provide the inspiration, techniques and confidence to be more creative.

These workshops came into being because we wanted to show people that with just a little knowledge and a gentle nudge how enjoyable and easy creating wonderful textiles can be. We often heard people saying, “Oh, I’d never be able to do that…I can’t sew…I’m not creative…I wouldn’t have the confidence” and we decided that enough was enough! With a few easy, accessible skills anyone can enhance their everyday environment by designing and producing beautiful items. And of course they make fantastic gifts!

We offer a variety of embroidery, print and sewing skills workshops. As well as learning, or refreshing, essential skills, you walk away with a lovely finished product at the end of each workshop.

Textile Workshop Dublin was set up by myself, Paget, and Rebecca in the summer of 2009. Rebecca has gone on to specialize in Art education and our 2 women tutoring team now consists of myself and the talented Jane from the independent Irish boutique label JaneyClothing.

Our workshops are based in two locations- the lovely Pearse museum in Rathfarnham, and the charming Nelly's cafe run by the lovely Caroline on South Circular Road in Dublin.
