Waulking was the end stage in homespun tweed production. A group of women and girls would rhythmically beat the cloth on a hard table, to shrink and soften it. Waulking songs would be sung throughout the process – with one woman singing the verses and the others joining in the choruses.
Joy Dunlop, Mod Gold Medalist and multi-prize winning Gaelic Singer, leads this interactive workshop.
There is a 2nd Waulking Songs session on Saturday 3rd February with Catherine Tinney.
