Event description

Description

Friday 25 August 11.30am - 1.00pm High Hairstyles: Quiffs & Quilling

Led by facilitator Julie Duhy, this workshop exploring ideas in the exhibition Bristle: Hair and Hegemony begins by exploring its title; hair in relation to culture, society, identity, and ethnicity, and concepts of hairstyles, the history of Coiffure, from Marie Antoinette and Washington to Marge Simpson and Donald Trump to other artist’s work that depicted hair through the centuries. Children will use the art technique of filigree (quilling) to make huge hair.

About Children’s Workshops at Highlanes Gallery

Workshops are for children aged 5 - 13yrs, and charged at €6 per child, with booking essential.

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.
