Limerick Lace Workshop for Beginners

Featured Image


About the event

A one day Limerick lace workshop for beginners will take place in the Limerick Museum, that has a number of remarkable lace artefacts on display.

The workshop will be led by reputed lace teacher Toni O’Malley. Toni learnt the craft of Limerick lace from the Good Shepherd nuns in her childhood and teens, as she lived in the Pennywell area and had a keen interest in needlework.

Toni has been teaching Limerick lace in workshops in Kenmare, as well as abroad in Europe, in different venues since the 1980s.

In 2016, she started teaching weekly classes in Limerick, first in the Hunt Museum and then in the City Library in the Granary. Classes were discontinued during the pandemic, but have reconvened in the autumn of 2022 in a new venue.
