There aren’t too many places you can visit in Ireland that will offer you a workshop on bread making, watercolour painting, crochet and more- and provide you with a home-made afternoon tea also. Sandra has created a very special destination in Crafts of Ireland and we are delighted to have her onboard as part of the Created in Cavan food and drinks network. A love of our heritage and her crafts brought her to where she is today. Combine this with her passion for home-grown produce, baking, churning butter and making her own jam- its not surprising that visitors keep flocking back.

Sandra has been demonstrating and teaching traditional skills and crafts to people of all ages since 2016. Her business is based in the heart of the Cavan Countryside in Knocknaveagh, Virginia. From her purpose-built studio on the family farm, she entertains with afternoon tea and teaches a varied selection of craft workshops. In their field, they have a small flock of native, rare breed Roscommon Sheep and in the garden, they grow a small patch of flax to produce linen thread, a craft that was practiced in this area over 200 years ago.

A workshop visit that includes afternoon tea is a special experience when you visit Crafts of Ireland.  The tables will be set with white tablecloths and napkins, beautiful vintage China and Newbridge cutlery, all the food will have been freshly baked and prepared in our Sandra’s own approved kitchen and they are happy to cater for special dietary requirements.

Some of Sandra’s yummy creations include salted caramel, sweet chilli jam, sourdough, soda bread and so much more!

Sandra runs workshops in both crafting and baking. If you would like to book in on your own or as part of a small group, you can check workshop availability on their booking page. If you would like to visit as a group please contact Crafts of Ireland directly for availability, options and prices, minimum numbers for group bookings do apply.
