Traditional Skills

Visited the Wicklow Traditional Skills Day held in the courtyard of Wicklow's Historic Gaol last weekend.  There were talks and demonstrations of traditional building, rural and household skills - knitting, felting and crocheting, weaving, pottery, joinery construction, use of lime, blacksmithing, wood turning, thatching and even Bronze Age casting!

The event was co-ordinated by the Heritage Office of Wicklow County Council, with support from The Heritage Council.
