Talks and Workshops
I enjoy sharing my passion for Irish Linen, from the history of flax and the importance of the linen industry in Ulster to the relevance of the flax plant today, as the world adjusts to the effects of climate change and seeks eco friendly textiles.
I have given talks and workshops to many different organisations and groups in recent years. From local history groups and Women's Institutes to international textile tours and museums, and at the Linen Hall Library in Belfast during their Linenopolis exhibition in 2019.
Workshops can include having the opportunity to handle museum quality textiles and hear about all things linen related. Both talks and workshops can be tailored to your particular needs and interests, the shortest talk being around 30 minutes.
If the ongoing Covid19 pandemic makes physical meetings of your group impractical, then I can provide a digital version of a talk if required.
If you are interested to have me speak, or you'd like to offer a workshop to your group, then please do get in touch by email using the link below.
