Tuam Spirit Babies - Kitchen table craft

Please join us for an informal morning of craft, coffee and chat round our kitchen table to make white 'keepsakes' for our project 'Tuam Spirit Babies.' (Tuam means burial mound and so represents all other burial mounds and buried truths.) 

These will be white (5"x5") and displayed at an exhibition space in Tuam on November 2nd 2016 (venue to be confirmed next week.) This ongoing project is to recognise those 800 mothers and small children who died during their time at the Bon Secours Mother and Baby Home in Tuam and whose bodies are still missing. It is also to recognise the survivors and for those who are still searching for loved ones.

I will have a certain amount of materials available here but please bring anything that might be useful (White material, wool, thread, sewing machines.etc..)

You don't need to be artistic, just come and have fun. Everyone's contribution is valid and necessary.

There's been a wonderful response to this project so far. Don't miss the opportunity to contribute and please bring a friend. Babies and children welcome Xx All welcome (there are many different people already involved and this project is very much about EVERYONE.)

11am -

Look forward to seeing you then.
