Join Enniscorthy based artist Nadia Corridan, as she teaches you to create art using basic materials found in any household! We will be exploring the art of combine-materials and textiles. You will be creating a 3D Peacock bursting with colour, fun and imagination!
Work created during this workshop will be displayed in our online gallery with a virtual exhibition launch on the 12th June 2021 at 2pm as part of the Cruinniú na nÓg programme. Please send images of work created to [email protected].
For this workshop, Nadia will be using common recycled materials from the home, limiting the expense or necessity to source specialist materials.This workshop is aimed at children 7-9 years of age.
Materials written in bold are the essential supplies you will need for the art class.
What materials you wish to use, to decorate and add colour to your peacock is entirely up to you!
This workshop is part of the Cruinniú na nÓg programme 2021 and is an initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme presented in partnership with Wexford County Council.
