Heritage Week: The Custom of Weaving a St. Brigid’s Cross

Aug 22, 2020 All day

‘Heritage and Education: Learning from our Heritage’.

The theme for Heritage Week 2020 is ‘Heritage and Education: Learning from our Heritage’. Engaging with our shared heritage presents a rich source for learning, and an opportunity to rediscover and reconnect with the knowledge, traditions and skills of our ancestors. This year, we encourage everybody to explore the close connection between education and heritage, and to consider what our heritage can teach us about our past, what it can tell us about our present and how it can provide fresh ideas for a sustainable future.

This year, because of Covid-19, events for Heritage Week will be through social media.  Solas Bhride will be posting a video on our website which will involve a demonstration on how to weave a  St. Brigid’s cross and a short input on the customs surrounding the weaving.

Watch this space!
