Early Years Workshop: Little Bird 7 Dec 2021

It’s oh so cold this time of year but the birds are still outside looking for food on the hard cold ground and in the frosty air.

In this workshop you’ll hear the tale of a hungry little Robin who needs your help. Learn how to make a special bird feeder for Robin and his friends to hang in your garden or window box.

Search for worms in our sensory garden or make a branch full of berries to keep our little friend fed.

With the help of your grown-up, you could make your own feathered friend to take home and keep cosy all winter long.

About the Artist...

Jane Groves is a visual artist whose work is embedded in meaningful process-driven engagement and site-specific installation. Her work encompasses a variety of methodologies from silversmithing and metalwork to printing and fabric design and she curates spaces and creates work intended to be viewed in context.

Jane loves to connect people, places, and landscapes and specialises in working with young people, inspired by her own observations of nature and informed in part by many children’s lack of interaction with and vocabulary about the natural world. Jane delights in bringing her spark to very young children and their families, listening carefully and delighting in the creative response, encouraging passion, playfulness, and curiosity. Jane has worked extensively with children and communities through working with The Ark, Dublin City Council, Creativity In The Classroom , The Craft and Design Council, DLR, and many more.
