Craft Classes in South Tipperary 2011


Great Opportunity to get Crafty in the New Year!
• Subsidised craft classes starting all over Tipperary from January to April


The New Year is a great time to learn new skills. A series of over 30 craft workshops will be held all over the county to give people the opportunity to try their hand at something different. The driving force behind the classes is The Craft Granary in Cahir who are running this program named “A Taste Of Craft”. Classes will be held in venues in Clonmel, Cashel, Cahir, Carrick On Suir, Tipperary Town and Fethard.
Classes, totalling ten hours tuition and which include all materials, cost just €35, representing excellent value for money in these recessionary times. At the end of the class you get to keep what you make.
“The best things in life may be free, but the next best things are handmade. Give your wallet a break and instead of buying stuff, learn how to make it” said Helen Shanahan, Manager of The Craft Granary.
Classes (which all cost €35 including materials) scheduled so far are:
