Children’s Crafts Club 2020 25 - 26 Jan 2020

Try your hand at a variety of fun crafts using different materials at this year’s Tradfest Children’s Crafts Club for Ages 4+ in partnership with the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland. Part of the TradFest Children's Hub 2020.

These short 30 min ‘taster’ sessions invite children to try their hand at a variety of fun traditional crafts using different materials. Children must choose from one of three options below, all led by professional crafts artists.

1. Sensational Soapmaking: Let the music wash over you with scented soaps inspired by Irish music. Sounds and smells go together like the sound of a waves and the smell of the sea as Gosia Sobkowicz helps you create a soap with smells that are lively and uplifting - designed to get you singing in the shower!

2. Songbook Binding:
Create a very special songbook using textures, colours and patterns that inspire you. Bookbinder Sandi Sexton will guide you and make sure you have somewhere special to keep all your lyrics, poems and creative thoughts.

3. Creations in Clay: Sometimes to come up with new ideas we need to learn from the world around us. Use clay to create magical listening machine with artist Marta Golubowska.
