    DescriptionHaving learnt the craft from Ireland's last damask weaver, his death brought home the realisation that the craft, and its three hundred year association with the north of Ireland, were fast in danger of extinction. HCA support spring boarded my restoration of a broadloom used for the accession of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1952, and generated an AHRC- sponsored PhD exploring the techniques of hand-woven Irish Damask.
