Tuesday 1 November 2011


We've been so busy with preparations for Ardagh School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and other events that there was no time left to post updates here all week. The weekend was a great success and we want to sincerely thank all of our volunteers for helping with beast building, decorating, face-painting, tea and coffee making and general scariness over the last few weeks. There are lots of photos now on our facebook page: Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre, please 'like' it and feel free to share the links.

All Block 1 classes have now finished and we are taking bookings for Block 2 courses which start from Monday 7th November. New students are welcome any week during each block (subject to places being available).

The 4 to 7 and 8 to 12 year old groups finished last week with small presentations of their work in front of family members. Classes resume for 8 to 12 year olds on Monday next from 4.00 pm to 5.30 pm and for 4 to 7 year olds from 3.30 pm to 4.30 pm on Thursday 10th November. Creativity for 13 to 18 year olds also takes place on Thursdays from 5.00 pm to 6.30 pm.

Still-Life Painting is starting for adults on Monday mornings from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and Creative Textiles continues on Friday mornings from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm. Bookings on 086 3027602 or creativeardagh@gmail.com.
Last week we also had an enjoyable costume making workshop as part of  the Aisling Children's Arts Festival and Club Ardagh mid-term camp students visited this morning and return tomorrow for some seasonal art. We are creating a winter forest and had great fun in the morning sunshine collecting leaves and branches in the woods and painting with twigs and other items. Pictures will be posted when it's completed.
We are closed for a well deserved break from 12.30 pm tomorrow until 10.00 am on Monday 7th November.
