Creating Allure


Lecture at An Ghrianán Co Louth 

Creating Allure was the subject of Róisín de Buitléar's lecture at the annual Traditional Lacemakers of Ireland workshop this September. Covering: concept, design, function and decorative motifs, Róisín emcouraged the audience to look to traditional patterns of lacemaking to maintain authenticity while challenging them to become more creative about what was being made and look for more relevant contexts for new work.
