As part of the international felt exhibition held at the Pearse Museum we offer a rich programme to inspire and make you curious about textiles and the felt stained glass technique. Workshops, a Curator’s Talk, an Artist’s talk and even a treasure hunt are offered to you.
Come for the exhibition and stay to make a day out of it.
This event is possible with the generous support of the OPW. Pearse Museum and St Enda’s Park are operated and managed by the Office of Public Works.
