It’s been an incredibly crafty few weeks.
But if you missed out on the many brilliant events that took place all over the county as part of Cork Craft Month throughout August, there’s still time to get your hands dirty and try something new.
The last week of the month-long craft fair will see three key events going ahead and there’s still time to get involved.
Whether you’re up for a bit of DIY tile-making (could be handy if you’re redoing the kitchen) or interested in learning how to dye wool without using any nasty chemicals, these are the classes to book now:
