Early Years Workshops: Home for an Acorn 24 - 30 Jun 2023

Awaken the magic of your imagination and enter the wild woods in these creative visual art workshops with Jane Groves for children aged 2-4 and their grown-ups.

Through story and play, Jane will encourage the creation of woodland landscapes, a place where wolves once wandered, and the forest protected the homes of animals both real and fantastical.

Using a mix of natural and man-made materials, little ones and their grown-ups will imagine and play together to build a home for an acorn.

About Jane Groves

Jane Groves is a visual artist whose work is embedded in meaningful process-driven engagement and site-specific installation. 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.
