Event description

Description

Wednesday 2 August 11.30am - 1.00pm Drawing with Wool

Led by artist and gallery invigilator Yvonne Byrne, children attending this workshop will work together in collaboration to create a large-scale drawing with wool. Looking at work in the current exhibition Bristle: Hair and Hegemony, from artists like Jane Giffney, there will be a discussion about materials that have had a previous life, being re used to create something new, an artwork, with layered ideas and meanings, and in the case of this workshop, wool, which is made from animal hair.
Through this workshop children will experience and understand the process of discussing and sharing ideas, collaborating and creating something together, and ideas of temporary and permanent. https://youtu.be/QaetbebV0so

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.

This workshop is presented on the occasion of Bristle: Hair and Hegemony. Consider a visit with all of the family. Book a tour! Read more about the exhibition http://www.highlanes.ie/Activity.aspx?ActivityID=3327


The exhibition continues until 23 September 2017.
