Event Details

The Mummers Foundation invite you to attend a traditional Strawcraft Workshop, part of the Keepers of Tradition project supported by The Lough Erne Landscape Partnership through funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council. Join us on the day to learn heritage skills in straw and rush craft, taught by our team of experienced Fermanagh based craftspeople. You will learn the art of straw and rush weaving and have the opportunity to make your own mumming costume, Brigid day rush craft and corn dollies. Using all natural materials, including rushes, wheat and oaten straw. The team will pass on basic, traditional skills in plaiting so that all participants can be guaranteed to leave with having crafted either a Mummer Hat, Harvest Knot or Corn Doll.
