Limerick lace course at the Hunt Museum – the first steps

Now in its fourth week, the Limerick lace course taught by Toni O’Malley at the Hunt Museum is bringing the six participants on a beautiful journey.

  • The first week’s session was dedicated to the preparation of the tools and pattern tracing.
  • The second week saw the participants choosing a pattern and attaching it to the hoop, followed by learning the outline stitch.
  • During the third session, Toni taught us the heavy darn stitch.

See below a few images of our group at work:
