WB Yeats had two sisters Susan and Elizabeth, affectionately known as Lily and Lolly, who not only published many great Irish writers of their time including WB through their printing company Cuala Press, but were also highly regarded craft practitioners internationally. The Lily Lolly Craftfest looks to our heritage and is inspired to revive the undoubted legacy that Susan and Elizabeth Yeats left to Irish craft by sharing knowledge and skills between the generations.
