Lacemaking Weekend at An Grianán

The Guild of Irish Lacemakers will be hosting a lace-making weekend at An Grianán in July 2016. There will be classes in five disciplines as well as a Social Room for those who wish to just relax and make lace but without the formality of a class.

The cost for the full residential package covers bed and board as well as the class fee, while non-residents and Saturday-only attendees can chose between two options that includes class fees and some meals. All packages are open to non-members as well as members, who want to get away from it all in this beautiful part of the country, while practicing their craft-making skills.
