St Brigid's Cloak

St Brigid's Cloaks

St Brigid’s Cloaks, a community artwork developed by Wool In School in association with Creative Ireland and Kildare County Council.

4 stunning St Brigid’s Cloaks were crafted with an all -encompassing approach to wool heritage and art. This project developed & curated by Wool In Schools Lorna McCormack and Lead Artist Michelle Hickey Legge focused on using locally sourced Irish wool and sustainable resources. All which aligned with the ethos of Wool In School and a number of the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.

Over 950 individuals, including 250 school children from the town of Kildare contributed to St. Brigid’s Cloaks.
