As part of the Material World Summer School the Ark (Cultural Centre for Kids in Temple Bar in Dublin) is offerings “a fantastic opportunity to young people to learn fun new skills working creatively together looking at the earth, playing with natural fibres and making a magical large scale felt piece. They will be able to work sculpturally with the felts, to create rock formations, glaciers, animals, flowers, and creatures from their imagination. This truly is felting beyond the boundaries!
Over four days from Tuesday 7 to Friday 10 July from 10am to 3pm each day, artist Brigid McClean will guide children aged 9-11 years through the process of creating their own handmade felt”.
