Opening of Groundworks Studios Exhibition at Niland Gallery, Merchant's Road, Galway


Needlework, home-making, making do and mending tend to be referred to as ‘women’s work’……
Skills learned in the home are often under-appreciated when compared to those learned at school, in university or in the workplace.
This installation celebrates skills learned from the generations of women in my family who shared their knowledge of lace-making, dress-making, tailoring, knitting, crochet and more.

While the items included in this display are not for sale, the skills used to make them can be learned at Groundworks Studios workshops.

The exhibition is open from 10.30 to 18.00 every day until Saturday 6th July, 2011.

See for more photos from the exhibition.
