Jean Moran will demonstrate weaving on the floor loom with different fabrics and yarns at The Stack, Main Street, Ennistymon (V95 RT63). She will also demonstrate the spinning of local sheep’s fleece to the general public.
While crafting, Jean will give a history of Irish weaving and spinning in Ireland, from the history of weaving in the Liberties, Dublin, to the cottage industries.
Through storytelling and music, Aindrias De Staic will give an insight into the history of weaving and spinning in Ireland, with entertainment and fun!
He will draw on his musical skills giving a lively input to the evening, where individuals will leave feeling lifted from the entertainment and also hopefully bring home some interesting historical facts about the history of these crafts in Ireland.
