Children's Easter Workshop: Understanding Stained Glass
Thu 13 April 2017, 11:30 – 13:00 IST
Join artist and invigilator Yvonne Byrne in this fascinating workshop where using drawing, tissue paper and contact paper, children will gain an understanding of the stained glass process. With Yvonne, children will discuss the difference between the leaded technique used in windows and the copper foiled technique used in Tiffany lamps.
Highlanes Gallery’s former role as a Franciscan church provides a perfect example for this workshop as looking, analysing and discussing the beautiful stained glass windows, which are great specimens of painted glass, the session will also offer exploration into different painting techniques.
Workshops are for children aged 5 - 13yrs, and charged at €6 per child, with booking essential.
About Children’s Workshops at Highlanes Gallery
Workshops at the gallery are process-based and explore basic concepts and ideas with children as they are looking. The emphasis is placed on understanding the ideas surrounding the objects. Making objects forms part of that process but is not the only goal of the workshop.
