Please join us on March 13th at the Studio from 10:30-1:00.

We will be demonstrating how to make beautiful felt  Lilies to decorate our tents at the Easter Monday Craft Village in Merrion Square!

As a group project, we will be making Easter Lily rugs with the crowds of people on the Monday.  Let us know at the Sunday Session if you’d like to help at the tents!  Below is an overview of the wonderful festival events that are planned!

On Easter Monday, 28 March next, RTÉ will mark the centenary of the Rising by mounting a series of several hundred talks in numerous locations around Dublin. This will form part of the government’s official centenary commemorations and follows on from the success of the public event we ran earlier this year, ‘Road to the Rising’.

There will also be music, theatre, street performances, exhibitions, multi-media displays and participatory events that examine the history of the period as well as exploring the ensuing hundred years of our cultural tapestry.

One of the things we aim to do is have a tented craft village where people can see craftspeople working on things that would have been happening in the same way 100 years ago. We would aim to have demonstrations and where possible, members of the public might be able to try their hands at some of the crafts. If appropriate, we also hope to illustrate how these crafts may have changed in the last one hundred years.
