Spencer Dock: Canal Art Workshop with Rosie O’Reilly & Louise Gambrill

Spencer Dock

Drop by Spencer Dock for a Canal Art workshop in decorative ropework delivered by Rosie O’Reilly & Louise Gambrill (both canal boat dwellers) for Culture Night 2022.

The decorative ropework tradition of canal boats evolved as a practical demand for objects like fenders, soft and resilient barriers between the boat and the lock or the quay wall, but also from the cultural practice of decorative arts associated with human evolution in space and place.

This performance is part of an exciting programme of events at Spencer Dock for Culture Night Dublin 2022. Explore what else is happening at this venue in our web listings. Presented in partnership with Waterways Ireland, the North East Inner City, and Dublin Port.
