Wall Hanging 1pm – 3.30 10-15 years

CREATING TEXTILE ART PIECES USING RECYCLED MATERIALS

We’ll use the captivating myths of The Cuilcagh Geopark as inspiration to make abstract textile wall-hangings featuring the legendary Lugh, his dog, and his boat.

Participants will arrange pre-cut fabric pieces in different colours to create their designs. We will explore basic appliqué techniques and participants can sew their pieces, using embroidery hoops. We will explore colour, form and texture through cutting, gluing, and appliqué.

We’ll use pre-prepared branches with hanging ropes to display the finished artworks. It’s a hands-on experience where they’ll learn about local myths and textile crafting while reusing materials creatively. Basic sewing techniques will be taught so this is suitable for complete beginners.

This workshop is designed to engage and educate young individuals on the importance of reusing and repurposing clothing and textiles, ultimately diverting them from harmful landfill sites.

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

Please note that dogs (with the exception of Guide dogs) are not permitted at this event.

This event is funded thanks to Shared Island and Creative Ireland.
