Borris Lacemakers Heritage Week Exhibition
Borris Lacemakers present a windows exhibition in Borris, Co. Carlow from Saturday, 14th August – Sunday, 22nd August 2021. Exhibits will be displayed in the windows of O’Shea’s and Joyce’s pubs and the Credit Union on the Main Street of the village. The exhibition will have a COVID-19 theme with designs inspired by lacemakers’ experiences during restrictions and lockdown. 2021 marks the 150th anniversary of the founding of Borris Lace by Lady Harriet McMorrough Kavanagh, and the 5th anniversary of the revival by Borris Lacemakers. This exhibition highlights the success of the group and the enthusiasm and skill of the members. The exhibition includes samples from our recent collaboration with the ‘Borris Lace by Post’ project. It will make for an interesting visit to Borris! This project is funded by Carlow County Council under the Arts Acts Grants Scheme 2021.
