Ancient Viking Finger Braiding


When Waterford was called Vedrafjordr every cord, from sewing thread to ship’s ropes had to be made by hand.

Fingerbraiding is a fun way to turn five loops of wool into a strong and attractive cord which was used to decorate clothes and to prevent fraying.

Easy to learn and fun to do… come and make your own colourful armband using this ancient method.

Henry Glassie: Field Work


Over the last 50 years the celebrated American Folklorist Henry Glassie has been writing in-depth studies of communities and their art.  Inspired by the writings and ideas of Glassie – ‘Field Work’ is an immersive and meditative documentary set among the rituals and rhythms of working artists across Brazil, Turkey, North Carolina and Ireland.

The process of making something out of raw materials is luminously manifested in sequences which reflect in their measured and attentive approach the actual real time process of making, of the work of hands and of the close attention the artist is bringing to the work.

Starts at 7pm. Doors Open 6:30pm

Booking essential. Please go to the Garter Lane website for important information for visiting the theatre.

Time: 7pm - TBCpm
