A series of six art workshops for children aged 8-12

Facilitated by artist Rachel Webb

Tuesday evenings 6-8pm
Starting the 16th of October

Salmon are wonderful and mysterious creatures. Born in a river, they make their way to the sea, where they sometimes live for years, before overcoming many obstacles to make their way back up the very same river to lay their eggs.

Irish people often leave Ireland to live elsewhere – seeking jobs, training, travel and adventure. But they often come back again when they get married, have children or when they retire.

In these art workshops we are going to explore these themes. Where do the salmon go? Where do Irish people go? What brings them back? What does home mean to the salmon and to us?

We will make papier mache salmon to create a shoal. We’ll make murals that show salmon travels and Irish travels. We’ll look at why salmon are endangered and how we can help them, and all other sea creatures, survive. We’ll look at what home means to us and make pictures and models to reflect that.

There is room for a maximum of 12 children.
