This little notebook shares favourite images I have taken during September 2011 from Co. Donegal on the north west coast, Co. Wicklow on the east coast and Co. Carlow in the south east of Ireland. Some of the pages are lined and some filled with graph paper, most however are blank for you to sketch and fill as you will. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do and find this little notebook a helpful place to jot and plot!
Inspired by the beauty of the rural Irish landscape I create sculptural pieces and wearable art using traditional wet felting methods. My arts practice has two sides, the work I make for exhibition or sale from my studio at Duckett's Grove, Co. Carlow and the felting workshops I teach regularly in Ireland, mainland Europe and the USA. Teaching is a big love of mine, I really enjoy sharing my knowledge and hope to always provide a fun, interesting and positive experience for participants to remember! I offer regular beginners or technique specific workshops every weekend at Duckett's Grove as well as elsewhere in Ireland and the U.S. You can follow my daily activities at my blog http://www.clasheen.wordpress.com/
