New Limerick Lace classes are starting at the Granary (in the Library) on 12 September 2019 (Thursday mornings 10:30 to 12:30). The classes will take place weekly for 10 weeks. For registering your interest or for getting more information, call Toni O’Malley on 087 277 5113.
The photo shows the work of Eva Ryley, who started working on it in 2016, when she joined Toni O’Malley’s class. The shawl took over two years to finish, it is made on silk net, and both the tambour lace and the needle-run lace technique were used in this piece.
