We have created a series of tutorials introducing the first steps in the making of Limerick lace.
The tutorials are designed to help those who would like to get a taster before joining one of the lace making communities in Ireland.
The tutorials were video recorded by Digital Media Design students Jason O’Doherty and Fiachra Heffernan, and edited by Samantha Body with assistance from Alan Ryan (PhD candidate).
Eileen McCaffery kindly shared her expertise in these short videos.
These illustrate the basic steps for the needle run Limerick lace. If you are interested in the tambour lace type, you can watch this tutorial presented by Sandra Finnegan.
