Woodland Creature Workshop

  • Workshop

Explore a world of woodlands, foodwebs and ecosystems as you create your own woodland creature with craft maker and ecologist, Fiona O’Driscoll.

Woods are such intriguing and magical places with lots going on that we don’t always see on first glimpse. On the day you’ll learn a little about Irish woodlands, foodwebs and ecosystems from Leitrim-based Fiona. While learning more about these intriguing subjects, you’ll stitch up and stuff some knitted hedgehogs, badgers and felt toadstools with real, natural sheep fleece.

These animals don’t like staying in art centres too long though, they’ll want to be taken home and brought on adventures around your own locality! But be warned: They can get up to mischief and all can become unravelled…

  • One knitted animal and one toadstool will accompany each child home after class.
  • For children aged 8+ years.
  • Booking is essential.
  • Places for up to 10 children in this 90 min workshop.
  • Bookings will open in late May, see Leitrim Design House for more info.
