The stories of the extraordinary Irish women behind the design of the Honan Chapel textiles and their contribution to Ireland’s Arts and Crafts Movement have been largely ignored, according to Virginia Teehan, Director of Cultural Projects at UCC. In a public lecture this Wednesday evening titled The Centenary of the Honan Chapel: Jewel in the Crown of the Irish Arts and Crafts Movement, Teehan will discuss new research that has discovered the fantastic design world of three unsung artists Evelyn Gleeson, Katherine McCormack and Ethel Scally. Free and open to the public, Teehan’s lecture is part of UCC’s Revisiting the Rising series and will take place this Wednesday (May 25) at 6pm in UCC’s Geology and Geography Building (beside the Honan Chapel).
