Drawing with Thread – A National Drawing Day Celebration
Navan, Co. Meath
21 May 2022
The word ‘tapestry’ has come to be used to describe any textile hanging that contains imagery. Traditionally a tapestry was a large textile, woven by hand on a loom, using a technique that has not changed throughout history.

To celebrate National Drawing Day, visit the gallery where exhibiting artist Lorna Donlon will be demonstrating her captivating and ancient technique of tapestry weaving. Using bobbins of coloured yarns and threads to draw images into her hand woven tapestries, you too will have the opportunity to experience this ancient art form alongside the artist.

Examine her notebooks for inspiration and discover how she translated scientific data and microscope images into her tapestry while Artist in Residence at UCD College of Science. For younger audiences, they will have an array of tactile materials to explore, while immersed in the work on display.
