Craggaunowen Spinning and Textile Day

Every Year this is my absolute favourite event. Spinners and Weavers from all over Ireland travel to the very special archeological restoration of Craggaunowen in County Clare. We gather in a medieval castle to spin and weave, chat and relax amongst the beautiful rural surroundings. This year we were joined by a wonderful Musician Susanne Wunsch of Silver Sound Scape, who was in one of the wattle and daub houses on the cranóg, a human – built island on the lake.

This event happens every year in the middle of August. keep an eye on our newsletter to hear more about it next year, and come and join us!

Below is an atmospheric video of the event filmed by myself. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed the day.
