*FULLY BOOKED* Illustrated Talk: Paisley and Galway Shawls

Meitheamh 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm UTC+0

Many tourists, writers, artists, and photographers who visited Galway in the late 1800s and early 1900s were struck by the shawls worn by the women of Galway and the West. Though they were widely worn across Ireland, they became synonymous with Galway – a connection no doubt reinforced by the popular folk song – but many of these shawls were, in fact, imports from Scotland.

Join Dr Dan Coughlan, Curator of Textiles at Paisley Museum and Art Gallery, as he discusses the design, manufacture and popularity of Paisley Shawls and Galway Shawls. Originally from Co. Carlow, Dan Coughlan trained as a handloom weaver in Co. Wicklow before studying textile design at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and completing a PhD on textiles at the University of the West of Scotland.

This event is free of charge but, as places are limited, advance booking is strongly advised. Bookings open from Meitheamh 1st – please contact the Museum at (091) 532460 or museum@galwaycity.ie after this date to secure your place.

The event will be filmed for Galway City Museum for public dissemination and attendance implies consent to be recorded in the audience.

*Please note this event is now FULLY BOOKED!  If you have not booked a place don’t worry, you will still have access to the recording!
