Description

The story of Irish linen is long and lustrous. Here an exhibition presented by the Irish Linen Guild celebrates the beautiful cloth that Northern Ireland was so famous for. The exhibition includes a demonstration of hand-painting on cloth and delicate lace. A man carries out a process to show the absorbency of the cloth. Overall this is a wonderful collection of the products produced on linen, including a Beatles wall-hanging,
