Wool Awareness Programme

We are delighted to announce we now have a fantastic programme that can be done online at home or in school and for anyone interested in wool and an Eco fibre of the future. This Wool Awareness programme is perfect for teachers and parents interested in teaching children about the wonders of wool.

Available on teachable you will have access to all the information and be able to download  the course . It can also be used on  schools white boards and taught  at your own pace.
This programme brings back to children an understanding of wool and a heritage that has moulded the uses of wool today in Ireland. It also looks at wool as an eco fibre and how wool can play its part in the conversation of climate change
This is a very exciting and unique programme which also supports the fabric and fibre strand of the Art curriculum it is also cross curriculum .

Wool in School has been set up since September 2019 and during that time we have offered our workshop to many children.

We felt it would be more accessible for schools, teachers and parents to provide this very unique programme to you and show children the benefits and characteristics of wool , its heritage in Ireland and its amazing uses from fiber to fabric around the world

As part of this on line programme each enrolment will also receive  goodie bag of fabric from Irish woollen mills across the country .

Please also check our Wool in School Directory where you will find  local wool artists , weavers, spinners farmers and wool innovator's who are ready to share there experiences and expertise with you through workshops or guests speakers
