Bilingual art-based workshop (English and Irish) with Claire Hurley

It is a series of four online bilingual art-based workshops aimed at participants aged 9-13.  They will take place on Wednesday afternoons (4-6pm) and Saturday mornings (10am-12pm) over two weeks, June 9th-19th.

Dates: Wed 9th, Sat 12th, Wed 16th, Sat 19th of June. Participants must be available for all four sessions

During these workshops we will gently reflect on what positive personal experiences may have come out of this unprecedented time of lockdown in Ireland.  Open to boys and girls, the workshops will be bilingual in nature, incorporating Irish words and phrases as much as possible. Descriptions of art materials, some instructions and prompts will be given in Irish, as well as English – to allow for inclusivity.  Participants will be encouraged to use any Irish they have, even one or two words.


– We will use recycled materials that can be found around the home, as much as possible. E.g. newspaper, old magazines, envelopes, cardboard, Easter egg foil, sweet wrappers, glue, scissors etc.

– An additional ‘Fancy Materials Pack’ will be posted out to participants containing extra fancy papers, wool, string and wire, sparkly bits and beads; so everyone can participate without having to purchase extra supplies.

Booking is essential and is done through Eventbrite:

Please register your child for all four dates.

Thanks and kind regards,
