Rush & Rope-making Workshop


Heritage expert, Steffi Otto from the heritage in schools scheme visited us on 19th February 2019. We investigated Irish rope making heritage and the importance of ropes. Rope making is now an almost forgotten craft in Ireland. We used hemp and wool to make different sized skipping ropes using the rope walk. The senior room pupils made traditional Irish toys from the past using rushes including the bilberry basket, rattle, sword, pipes & butterfly catchers.
