Who Lives Here? Creating Dens and Nests 1 Dec 2015 - 16 Jan 2016

Explore the cosy homes and structures of the animal kingdom in this creative session created for Ages 2-4 with artist Paula Henihan. Part of Irish Design 2015

Paula will start with an engaging story about different types of cocoons, nests, caves and dens, the animals that live in them and how they make them. This will be followed by an interactive making session where the children will participate in different activity areas to make group and individual structures inspired by the animal habitats from the story.

Created for the very young, we playfully explore the idea of nature as the basis of all design, with a focus on architectural structures.
