Heritage Week Event: ‘The Art of Lacemaking – From economic driver to leisure time pursuit’ – Veronica Stuart

Wednesday, 14.00, 21.08.19, Heritage Lecture Theatre

As part of Heritage Week and the theme of Pass times in Past times, Nano Nagle Place is delighted to present a workshop by Veronica Stuart.

Veronica Stuart of Cork Lace Makers will give us a talk about the history of lacemaking, with particular reference to the Presentation Sisters’ connection with the craft. Antique lace from the collections of the Presentation Sisters will be brought out of the archive for this special event. Now a wonderful pass time – lace making in 18th and 19th century Ireland was seen as a way for women to earn much needed income from their homes.

This is a FREE event, no registration necessary.
