Join us to look at unique objects related to our local textile heritage.
This informal workshop will involve looking, talking, sharing stories and (for those that want to) a chance to thread a needle and try heritage sewing techniques.

Textile artist and social history enthusiast, Leisa Gray, has been working with a group of women who meet regularly in Clonmel to sew together. Leisa will share what the group have been working on and show you how she has responded to the museum’s textile collection. Leisa will also answer your questions and demonstrate the techniques she has been exploring, such as embroidery or lacemaking.
No previous experience is necessary. Everyone is welcome and the event is free to attend.

This project would not have been possible without the funding from The Heritage Council’s Heritage Stewardship Scheme.

We hope to see you there!
No need to book, just come along. We'll have our Fruit infused water for you to sample on the day!!!
