Join Borris Lacemakers for a demonstration and display of the unique traditional craft of Borris Lace at the Arboretum, Leighlinbridge on Saturday 19 August 2023 from 12pm-4pm. Meet the lacemakers to learn more about the cottage industry established by Lady Harriet MacMurrough Kavanagh in the mid-nineteenth century and revived in 2016 with the formation of Borris Lacemakers. Beautiful examples of Borris lace will be on display, and you will be able to watch the lacemakers creating both traditional and modern pieces using the stitching techniques of Borris lace. All are welcome and we look forward to meeting you on the day.
