Harvest Knot for Lughnasa – FREE WORKSHOP – Available to watch now
Join us for a unique Heritage Week event called ‘Harvest Knot for Lughnasa’, a cross-generational project that blends Irish Heritage with contemporary culture.
Lughnasa, traditionally marked by communities working together to bring in the harvest, is a time of celebration, fairs, dancing and family gatherings. Along with the making of the straw Cailleach, Harvest Knots & Love Favours were created to either wear for good luck or exchanged as tokens of love.
For the month of July, we will host an online workshop with Melanie Lorien, a Heritage in Schools expert, where she will show us how to create a Harvest Knot and discuss the folklore behind this tradition.
Workshop participants take a photo of themselves or their loved one wearing the Harvest Knot and send to the Arts Centre for our August online exhibition, blending Irish Tradition with contemporary culture.
