The Liberties Weavers aim to breathe new life into the 1000 years of history, weaving and textile production in the Liberties, Dublin.

We aim to do this by organising weaving classes, community based workshops (online and face-to-face), exhibitions and historical lectures for local residents and visitors to our area.

A great initiative. Also with all of the talk of mindfulness these days, there is no better way than to be creative, and to produce something to be proud of at the end is so rewarding. It was most enjoyable, giving a great insight into the history of the Liberties, not just through weaving but the whole social history which I loved. Very clear instructions given, with no pressure for speed or perfection. Very encouraging and positive!
