Bunting is widely used for festive occasions. Feltmakers Ireland invite you to channel your creativity and make triangular bunting to create a festive look around the Studio for Heritage week.
Bunting was first made in the 17th century, usually from fine worsted wool and used to decorate ships. Feltmakers Ireland has adapted this craft of past times and invites participants to create colourful triangles with wool fibre, soapy water and your own "elbow energy". you might even be encouraged to take up feltmaking as a pastime!
