Crios Belt Weaving Workshop

by Úna Curley
Creative Spark

€45.00

This workshop will teach you how to weave your own unique Crios Belt. The workshop is facilitated by Úna Curley. Tools and materials will be included and participants will take home their own Crios belt, heddle and comb.

The Crios belt, pronounced "Kris," is a hand-woven, is multi-colored woollen belt traditionally made by the men and women of the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. The belt was typically worn by fishermen and was made using up to six different colours, often with a white border. Each belt was unique, with its own set of colours and patterns that served as identification of the community or family.

During the 17th and 18th Centuries, Ireland's Penal Laws banned many aspects of Irish tradition, including religion, language, and dress. It is for this reason that the Crios belt and other folk costumes survived only in the remotest parts of Ireland like the Aran Islands. Today, these belts are hard to find and are considered an important and cherished part of Ireland's heritage.

Today there are few weavers who are reviving this ancient tradition. The belts can be worn or often used in handfasting ceremonies.
