Here is a roundup of some of the workshops and classes currently scheduled to take place in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. If I have missed an area that anyone would like me to include, just let me know (NB: I searched in Omagh, Cork, Donegal, Mayo and Tipperary (plus a few other places – I lost count) and came up with nothing, hence why the list is quite short!). I have also done a roundup for workshops in England, Scotland and Wales.
I have included classes that are currently scheduled that appear to have spaces available, or ones where you can arrange on an individual basis. I’ve kept the link in for places that don’t have any classes at time of search but that have previously had classes. I will update this when new classes are scheduled so if you are interested then keep an eye on it. All information is correct at time of searching, but please understand that I am not affiliated with any of the places offering classes, so they may make changes that I am not aware of. It is therefore best to contact the venue directly to see if there have been any changes to scheduled classes.

There are quite a few yarn shops in Northern Ireland but lots don’t have a website or don’t appear to offer classes or workshops. I’ll search again next time I do an update. If anyone knows of any places offering classes then please let me know and I’ll include them.

The classes part of their website seems to have disappeared so I don’t know if that means they are no longer running them. If you’re looking to do a class then I suggest giving them a ring to see what classes they have on, if any. Previous classes include Beginner and Improver Knitting and Crochet classes which cost between €45 and €55 for a 4 week course.
