Early Years Workshop: Little Light 8 - 9 Dec 2023

The shortest day of the year is near and all across the land it’s getting dark, but high in the inky sky a little star starts to shine brightly. However, it’s all alone and so so far away...

Join artist Jane Groves and play in the light and the dark and all the shadows in between. Learn how to make a lantern to light your way. Create bright shiny stars to join our lonely star, and make the night sky dazzle and twinkle all night.

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.
