LIVING HISTORY DEMO: Traditional Wool-Spinning and Weaving in Ireland

June 8 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+0

Humans have been spinning fibre into yarn and weaving yarn into cloth not just for centuries but for millennia. The cloth was made into clothing, bedding, tents and other such items, which were essential for the survival and comfort of humans. Without spinning and weaving, their world would have been a cold and comfortless place.

Join living-history weaver Seamus Kirwan as he discusses wool fibre and its various uses and demonstrates the Irish tradition of wool spinning and hand-weaving.

Come along and try your hand at it, you’ll really enjoy this hands-on experience.

This is a drop-in event. Booking is not required.
