Cross Weaving Workshop—St. Brigid’s Day Celebration
February 3 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Saturday, February 3, 2024 / 3-6 pm / St. Francis Room at the UICC
Back by popular demand and hosted by the UICC, the Irish Marvels cultural program, and the Patrick J. Dowling Library, this family friendly workshop offers instruction and materials for making your own cross. Enjoy live musical entertainment provided by Eamonn Flynn and Edel Meade. Tea, soda bread, and other refreshments will be provided. Brigid’s crosses are the most common and enduring tradition associated with Brigid. Traditionally woven on St. Brigid’s Eve the crosses are placed in the home, usually over the door, to bless all who come and to gain protection for the household from fire and disease.
Space is limited! Registration closes on Feb. 2 so as to ensure we have enough materials for all attendees. There will be a limited number of spaces available at the door.
