Whether you’re a “never-done-this-kind-of-thing-before” novice or an accomplished artist, an oldster or a youngster, there’s a Connemara Creative Workshop just for you. Our craft and design workshops cover lots of areas such as batik, felt making, tapestry weaving, printmaking and painting for kids.

Imagine creating your own unique piece of art in what is truly one of the world’s most inspirational settings, complete with brooding bogs, ever-changing seascapes, majestic mountains and ancient silent lakes.

The workshops are run by established artist Bernie Dignam who has specialised in textile art for the past number of years. Bernie holds a degree in design from Dublin Institute of Technology and is a qualified art teacher with several years experience. She teaches a range of crafts with an emphasis on developing your design and creative skills.
