On 1 September 2022 Emma, our Assistant Education Officer, contributed to BBC’s Six Music The 6 Museum, where she explored the history of damask weaving, and its role in the early history of computers!  In telling the story of Lisburn and its importance to the Irish linen industry Emma ‘donated’ one of our extremely rare damask looms, originally from Ballinderry, to the Six Music virtual museum.
