We were delighted to welcome 8 ladies to the Mountmellick Embroidery beginner workshop on Saturday last, (8 being the capacity number to ensure maximum individual attention.)
The ladies had travelled from far and wide including, Castlerea, Kerry, Kilkenny, Dublin, Killenard and Portarlington.
Everybody enjoyed the experience at the workshop with tutor, Dolores Dempsey and also the museum welcome video and guided tour. We wish you all many happy hours at your creative needlework and look forward to meeting you all again sometime.
Included are some photographs of the studio set-up courtesy of Dolores, thank you.
We are planning another workshop in September and already have names on a waiting list.
Workshops can be tailored to individual needs or skills e.g. beginner, or, experienced, so please let us know your preference.
We will post more information nearer the date.
The weekly drop -in class at the museum studio will also resume in September, again we will post more information prior to commencement.
The museum is open Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm, and at weekends by appointment.
