Limerick Lace Beginners Workshop

We were delighted to collaborate with the Northstar Family Support Project in offering an initiation into Limerick lace to a group of ladies yesterday, 28 May 2024.

Eva Ryley presented the first steps in Limerick lace: setting the hoop , threading the needle, copying a pattern and attaching it to the hoop, creating an outline and using filling stitches. Gabriela Avram gave a brief presentation on the history of Limerick lace and spoke about the Friends of Lace Limerick group and its initiatives.

Each participant received a Limerick lace beginners kit.

The workshop is part of the Laces of Ireland project, supported by the Creative Communities on a Shared Island programme.
