The Muddle
Craft and Fine Art Tutors

Creativity and Community


The Muddle Craft and Fine Art tutors are a group of Wicklow Crafters and Artists, both professionally trained and self-taught, some through family tradition.  They have come together to form a network of enthusiastic and experienced tutors who are passionate about passing on traditional craft skills and inspiring connection to our history but also to each other.  We believe that learning or engaging in arts or crafts lightens the soul and builds resilience and we are dedicated to sharing our skills for this reason. 

The group run classes in many areas in the Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Rathdown, and the Wicklow region and online. The Muddle group have built up a reputation as offering high quality programs for participants of all abilities and backgrounds. The group originated in Bray in a craft shop which offered a community space for people to learn and connect but the reputation of The Muddle is gradually expanding and becoming well recognised for its tutoring online and in person in the Wicklow area and beyond. 

All of our tutors are also makers so browse the shop to see their original art and crafts. Check out our shop also to find felting and weaving supplies.
