Fibre & textile arts

After many years of knitting, she wanted to better understand the process of creating the materials she was using and began spinning yarn from a variety of materials, though primarily sheep's wool. The process of creating, the serenity and patience that are the by-products of the art of spinning have always been more interesting to Norah than the end result. Norah bought her first spinning wheel in 2013, and will be demonstrating during the day in the former Long Point School House. Norah will be displaying at the Long Point School House. All displays at the School House are by descendants of Daniel O’Connor and Bridget Trainor, pioneer settlers at Long Point (1830), south of Lyndhurst. The Long Point School (SS#5) was built in 1862 and has been restored to the way it was around 1900. It closed as a school in 1960 and reverted to ownership of the O’Connor family. Currently proudly owned by Denis and Margaret Brennan, Margaret is the gr gr granddaughter of Daniel O’Connor. All welcome to come and ring the School Bell!

This event is free.
