Clones Lace Workshop
with Maire Treanor

Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April 19 | 10 am - 5 pm
(with a break for lunch)

Clones lace is an Irish Crochet, created during the Great Irish Famine in the late 1840s and named after the town in County Monaghan Ireland, where it was marketed. At the height of the famine, women and children became the main earners in thousands of families. Within a short period, nearly every family in the area was involved in its production. Supplying fashion markets in Dublin, London, Paris, Rome, New York and San Francisco, Clones soon became the most important center of crochet lace making in the north of Ireland, while Cork was the leading center in the south of the country.

Join instructor Máire Treanor on this Irish crochet two-day workshop dedicated to historical aspects of Irish crochet and Clones lace, a crochet technique that has gained popularity for its delicate, intricate design elements. With Irish Crochet and Clones Lace under the guidance of Máire, you'll learn how to crochet the Clones knot and a variety of crocheted motifs in jewelry and other motives associated with Clones lace, such as the Wild Irish Rose, shamrock, buttony, and more; how to combine Clones lace designs, including how to build motifs around packing cord, surround them with other knots and motifs, and more, connecting the pieces in a freeform design. 

Some familiarity with crocheting is helpful, but not required.
