For Heritage Week, the Corrib Lacemakers, are holding a Carrickmacross Lace exhibition. This exhibition is inspired by heritage sites, landmarks and traditional craftsmanship skills of Galway, Connemara and the Aran Islands. Galway’s coastal location on the Wild Atlantic Way enhanced the choice of themes created in this lace exhibition.
The Corrib Lacemakers originated from a Heritage Week craft event held in Galway in 2017. We meet weekly to share, promote and encourage participation in the community to help ensure the sustainability of lacemaking skills long into the future. We will be available at the Fishery Watchtower Museum, Galway to demonstrate and explain how this beautiful and delicate lace is made. Everyone’s welcome.(excerpt from the Heritage Week website)
The exhibition will run from 13 to 20 August, and is open from 10:30am to 5pm.
