We have a fantastic array of free workshops coming up with artists Rachel Webb & writer Mary Branley!
The Migration Project with Rachel Webb
This series of six art workshops for children aged 8 – 12 starts on Tuesday 19th September at the Glens Centre in Manorhamilton, with each session running from 5.30 – 7.30. Looking at how and why birds and people migrate into and out of Ireland, the similar and different reasons for leaving home to travel to a faraway place, we will be watching short videos, playing games, making bird masks, models, paintings and video. Although the participants will learn about bird migration, and about why people from other countries come to live here, the emphasis will be on fun and making things.
