Tyrone Makers Tour
Tyrone Makers Open Day
Sunday 12th June 2022
Join us in celebrating the skills and crafts of the Tyrone Makers on Sunday 12th June. We’re opening up the bog museum, the industrial & weavers museum, Tyrone Crafted Glass. These fascinating experiences are all in the Coalisland area, which means you can visit all of them on the one day!
There will be tours every hour from 10am with the last tour at 3pm.
WEAVING FACTORY & INDUSTRIAL MUSEUM
Explore the good old days and visit the Bog Museum with a treasure house of exhibits of old artifacts which reveal much about the rich and varied history of Ireland before and after the ice age. Followed by a 20 minute video on our big screen showing a “Day in the Bog”.
Then step back in time and visit the old weaving factory & industrial museum and experience the days of old when men and women worked long hours over the large looms which still stand as they were left all those years ago.
This tour starts at Island Turf Craft shop. Tickets £3pp can be purchased at the door.

Tyrone Crafted Glass
Just a short stroll from The Bog Museum & Weaving Factory is Tyrone Crafted Glass, where you can learn about the legacy of the famous Tyrone Crystal factory which closed in 2010. Former staff from the factory have now opened their own artisan craft studio where they produce high quality products, including glasses, tankards, platters, trophies and even chandeliers. Visitors can enjoy an introductory talk on the history of glass making and an exciting hands-on experience at the popular ‘cut and keep’ workshops. Take home your very own handmade Tyrone Crafted Glass.
Tours commence every hour on the hour from 10am, with the last tour at 3pm, tickets are £15pp.
Tyrone Crafted Glass is located in the same enterprise park, unit 53.
