Lisburn Museum Centenary Quilt Programme

As part of the programme to mark 100 years of Northern Ireland Lisburn Museum is working with groups and individuals to create a quilt project, helping people to express how they feel about Northern Ireland through the medium of textiles.

On the 27th October 2021 children (and adults) from Adventures Day Nursery arrived for their quilt workshop session.

Read on to see how we all got on!

The first thing to do was design the panels and start sketching out images onto the linen backing.

Next adding colour with Markers, spray paints and fabric paints.

We investigated the Museum’s Egan Harp while Davina sealed our work using an iron.  Then it was time to evaluate the session!
