Bobbin Lace Workshops

Headford Lace Project runs several bobbin lacemaking workshops throughout the year with our wonderful tutor, Jackie Magnin. We also invite visiting instructors to teach other Irish laces, including needlepoint, needlerun, Irish crochet, tatting, applique, and embroidery techniques. 

Our next workshop weekend takes place on 20-22 September 2024.

  • Friday 20: Presentation from Gabriela Avram
  • Saturday 21: Introduction to Limerick Lace with Eva Ryley 
  • Sunday 22: Improvers Bobbin Lace with Jackie Magnin
