Workshops

Enter the world of textile art with professional maker Karen O’Kane who will introduce you to a variety of textile arts including her specialised craft of painting on pure silk.

I have been working full time as a textile artist for 10 years and now I love to share my skills both in my own professional studio in the picturesque village of Ramelton, Co Donegal and as a visiting facilitator in community settings throughout Ireland and the UK.

Workshops based in the community can be a minimum of 1.5 hours, weekly workshops, 6 hour workshops in one day, 12 hour workshops in 2 days depending on what you would like to make during the workshop. They are tailored for all ages and ability. A specific theme can be chosen for the workshop.

I also attend events, parties, weddings and festivals and facilitate a collaborative silk painting which is a very fun way to engage your guests or visitors in a little bit of silk fun.
