Event Description

Level 5, dlr LexIcon

Until 9 September

The Yeats sisters, Susan and Elizabeth (known as Lily and Lollie), lived and worked for most of their lives in the Dundrum/Churchtown area. With their enterprise Cuala Industries, they made an extraordinary portfolio of work – with the Press directed by Elizabeth, and the embroidery workshop conducted by Susan.

This exhibition features original Cuala Press material from dlr libraries archives, curated by Dr Billy Shortall, Cuala Press Project, Schooner Foundation, TCD, along with a selection of contemporary textile works by members of the Irish Guild of Embroiderers.

The exhibition was organised by The Yeats Sisters Commemoration Project in collaborative partnership with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Heritage & Libraries; the Cuala Press Project, Schooner Foundation, Trinity College Dublin; National Print Museum and the Irish Guild of Embroiderers.
