Exploring Creativity in the Footsteps of Lugh – 11-12.30pm and 2.30-4pm

Children are invited to unleash their imagination, embrace new experiences through activities that promote exploration, experimentation, and build creative confidence.

The giant Lugh in Irish folklore was the possessor and inventor of all the arts and was a great King and leader. At the 2nd battle of Moytura, Lugh slayed his grandfather Balor. Balor had lifted his eye with the intention of poisoning all it would behold. Lugh slew his grandfather with a slingshot that he aimed into his ‘Evil Eye’. Lugh became the new King of the Tuatha De Danann.

King Lugh Head-dress and sword- using a mix of materials including recycled and found natural materials the children will create a headdress fit for king and a small, bejewelled sword (from card). The children will be encouraged to take part in a short procession to display their work.

Balor’s Evil Eye- using a mix of materials the children will create Balors’ evil eye! Collage is a creative and sustainable activity as it teaches children about recycling and reusing materials in a creative way. Collage art allows children to explore texture, colour, shape and design without the need to rely on drawing ability.

Suitable for children 8 to 14 years old, 90 minutes workshop.

Parents will be required to stay with Children who have additional needs.

Please wear suitable footwear and warm waterproof clothing but also factor in sunny weather.
