Event Description

A collaboration between the Yeats Sisters Commemoration Project and the Irish Guild of Embroiderers, with the support of DLR Heritage and Dublin City Library and Archive.

This exhibition will tell the origins of the Dum Emer & Cuala Industries in Dundrum and Churchtown, the engagement between the Yeatses but specifically Susan ‘Lily’, and the pioneering figure of Evelyn Gleeson; elaborate through a series of visuals from original prints, the work of the many women artists who contributed to the Cuala portfolio, and present original works by the members of the Irish Guild of Embroiderers, who, in marking the centenary publication of ‘The Cat and the Moon’ (Cuala, 1924) have found inspiration within the themes of this W.B Yeats’ work, while also reflecting the colour palette and skilful selection of stitches created by Susan ‘Lily’ Yeats in completing her work.
