Event description

Description

Wednesday 23 August 11.30am - 1.00pm : Branch Weaving/Plaiting

In this Heritage Week Workshop, led by artist and gallery invigilator Yvonne Byrne, where hair is the focus of the current exhibition Bristle. Hair and Hegemony, children will explore the use of hair in art, whilst incorporating National Heritage Week's 2017 theme of biodiversity. Weaving is an ancient art form that represents cultural and personal identity. Looking at the works of Stephen Lau and So Yoon Lym and using branches as a frame/loom, children will create a structure using animal hair such as wool, feathers and other natural materials in their own creative way.

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
