I was met by the lovely Diana at Dalkey Dart station and she walked me to her beautiful home overlooking the sea. The views on the way to her house were stunning and it was lovely to see everyone greeting as we passed- Diana is very popular in Dalkey :) . The weather was amazing so we sat outside in her gorgeous garden with her dogs. If it had been raining we would have sat in by the fire which would have been equally as relaxing. Diana served afternoon tea which was absolutely delicious! The afternoon tea included homemade meringue with passionfruit and tea in china cups- just lovely. Diana introduced me to latching and told me about the latching supplies and the relationships that she has built with the suppliers of the wool and materials. She is an excellent teacher and I picked it up easily from her instructions (which I would not normally do). It is a very relaxing and satisfying craft. Diana also showed me more of the local area after the class and different walks that you can take locally. The afternoon flew by with Diana who was a delightful, charming and informative host. I would absolutely recommend this charming, cozy and crafty experience.

This could not have been a better day experience- even as Dublin locals, we learnt so much about the Dalkey area from Diana on our driven tour of the surrounding area and we felt so welcome at her beautiful home after this. The afternoon tea, enjoyed in the brilliant sunshine outside, was absolutely delicious- the highlight being a homemade pavlova- and the crafting experience was both relaxing and enjoyable. Di made the whole learning process so simple: all 3 of us got the hang of it really quickly and left with the tools to continue our little rug squares at home! We really would recommend this hugely enjoyable experience to anyone who would like learn a traditional crafting method, whilst feeling totally at home in Dalkey.

We loved learning to latch rugs with Diana! She was so welcoming and kind and we loved having tea with her and learning a little bit about Dalkey and the area where she lived. She was a great teacher and had us making little sample rugs in no time. I loved seeing the rugs she had made which decorate her lovely home, and it was a really special experience to learn a new skill on my trip to Ireland and return home knowing something new. Overall a really great afternoon :)

Der Kurs mit Diana war richtig toll. Sie hat mir ein paar unvergessliche Stunden Zeit geschenkt, mit einer Sightseeingtour durch Dalkey und dem Teppichknüpfen . In ihrem sehr gemütlichen Zuhause haben wir uns über Handarbeiten und auch sonstige Themen gut unterhalten und sie hat uns Kaffee gemacht und ein Lunch gezaubert. Es war alles in Allem eine wunderbare Zeit, in einem echten irishen Heim, die man sonst nicht so einfach miterleben kann. Ich kann das nur jedem, der etwas Besonderes erleben möchte ans Herz legen! Vielen Dank Diana.

It is a quaint coastal town and the ride there as well as a walk in town were great. We latched and talked and got a local’s view of life. Diane is a lovely lady. We also had little smoked trout sandwiches. It was the beat smoked trout I have ever had.

It was a amazing experience. Diana picked us from the Dart station and drove us to her house. She had baked goodies along with tea. The view of the sea from the house is awesome. She provided all the materials needed and step to step guidance to understand the art of latching. She even provided details of the stores were we could purchase more to start our own rug making. At the end of the class she took us on a small walking tour of Dalkey before we ended the experience back at the train station. Overall it was very well spent afternoon.
