Woolapalooza

This May bank holiday weekend was perfect for Woolapalooza which took place in the lovely Airfield Estate, Dundrum, Dublin. What wonderful weather and what an appropriate venue for a couple of days packed with all things woolly. I attended to help out all the dedicated members from the Irish Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers who had a stand.

The day was full of activities for the whole family including sheep shearing, sheep dog herding demonstrations, acid and natural wool dyeing and dye plant walks.

A range of natural colours.

There were also farm animals aplenty, both real and make believe. If you’ve never been to this event and never experienced Airfield Estate, don’t miss it next year. I’m certainly going back for another wonderful experience.
