Description

Kenmare Lace Workshop with Nora Finnegan – Duration: 3 hours

In this workshop you will learn to create your very own piece of Kenmare Lace. You will begin to understand the intricate art of lacemaking taught by Nora Finnegan of Kenmare Lace & Design Centre.

Kenmare Lace is a needlepoint lace. It is made with a needle and thread. At the back are two pieces of cloth. Over that is the design. The design is covered with a layer of green or blue matt contact. These designs are copies of those designs, which were hand painted by the nuns at the Convent of The Poor Clare’s Kenmare over 100 years ago. The four layers are tacked (basted) together.
