The Ark

Animals as Messengers, Guides and Fairies: Visual Art Video Workshop

Online

Let’s connect with the animal world in this online mini-sculpture video workshop with Duffy Mooney-Sheppard! In Irish folklore, animals often live between worlds, carrying meaning and messages. Is there an animal that you have been noticing recently? In the park, at your window, or maybe in your dreams? In this video workshop, we discover stories and wisdom associated with native animals and create a miniature sculpture of the one which carries a special meaning to you. The Ark is proud to create opportunities for children to engage with their creativity.

You will need:

Sharp pencils or cocktail sticks

Plasticine (also called marla)

Optional – buttons, beads, or pipe cleaners

For safety reasons, a grown-up should be present in the room throughout and be available to assist their child. Have fun!

Time: 4pm - Any Timepm

Forest of Fun: Early Years Dance Video Workshop

Online

Join dancer Monica Muñoz for a joyful online dance video workshop for little ones aged 2-4, and their grown-ups. Come on an imaginary journey into the forest. Let’s find some busy bugs, sleepy bears, and flapping owls. How do they move? Do they like to hide in the trees or to roll in the mud? We will jump, roll, slide, and spin!

We will also build a simple forest dance landscape using everyday materials in our homes – so bring along your wellies, a few woolly jumpers (forest colours if you have them), and some paper plates. For safety reasons, a grown-up should be present throughout and be available to assist their child. To participate, you will need approximately 8 x 8 paces of space free of hazards, and wear comfortable clothes and shoes. See you in the woods!
