Making book structures in Dublin

The Pearse Museum in Rathfarnham was the venue for two workshops with members of the Irish Guild of Embroiderers. This 18th century house, formerly a school founded by Patrick Pearse, is a great place to visit. There are many original features to see and it’s set in a beautiful park and gardens.

What an enthusiastic bunch of embroiderers! We had a great four days and the sun shone for us. Here are some of the things they made.

We concentrated on making book structures that would be useful for embroiderers as methods of displaying , presenting or just keeping stitched textiles and samples.
