Description

The Limerick Museum in collaboration with Friends of Lace would like to invite you to the Amazing Lace symposium that will take place in the Absolute Hotel in Limerick on Saturday, 17 November 2018, from 10am to 5pm.

Friends of Lace are a local group of lace makers formed in 2017 in Limerick with the mission to bring Limerick lace to public attention by contributing to the preservation, documentation and research on existing artefacts in museum and private collections, creating teaching resources and supporting novel interpretations and uses of Limerick lace.

The theme of the symposium will be Lace Making in the Modern World - Tradition and Interpretation.

The symposium will include presentations from invited speakers, discussions on the topic of lace preservation, promoting lace making as a living craft, teaching lace making, and lace commercialisation.

Lace makers are invited to bring finished pieces or work-in-progress for a small ad-hoc exhibition.

Attendance is free and everybody is welcome, but registration is compulsory.
