Talk & Demostration: From Sheep to Shawl – Traditional Woolcraft in the West of Ireland at Westside Resource Centre

Join weaver Seamus Kirwan as he guides you through a living history of wool fibre and its uses, keeping alive the ancient crafts of wool spinning and handweaving. Come along and try your hand at it, you’ll really enjoy this hands-on experience.

As part of its outreach programme, Galway City Museum has curated a series of educational events, which will take place at Westside Resource Centre, on Seamus Quirke Road, throughout the darker months between October 2023 and February 2024.

The series has been specially developed in response to the interests of the local community and covers a wide range of topics from the history of the Claddagh fishing village to St Gobnait and the folklore of bees.

These events are free of charge, and all are welcome, but please book in advance by contacting Westside Resource Centre at (091) 528325.
