Will you be able to find some of these shapes around the building? We will also be seeing what shapes we find outside before having some fun creating patterns with tessellating shapes with printing and paper mosaics. This curriculum-linked workshop can be adapted to suit all ages and don't forget that we are running special family sessions on Saturday 10th and 17th at 3pm, €24 for a family of 4 (1 adult and 3 children or 2 adults and 2 children) or €5 per adult, €8 per child.
If you can't make it along, why not try some tessellations for yourself with this tessellation creator and if you figure out what the hammer does, let us know!

Creative Ardagh, in partnership with County Longford Arts Office and Cruthú Arts Festival are inviting all artists, writers, poets, established and new, young and old to take part in an exciting Visual Arts and Literature Project.
We want to celebrate our local legend by publishing an anthology of stories, poetry and artwork by people of all ages. We envisage a mix of work from professional artists and writers, along with the work of children and other budding artists/writers based on the legend of Midir and Etain.
This inspirational legend lends itself to an exciting project such as this. Be inspired by the drama, love, envy and shapeshifting transformations that are entwined in the story and produce your own creation in whatever media you like. We are accepting poetry and stories up to a maximum of 1500 words and artworks in any media including drawing, painting, photography, digital media and images of 3d artwork. The only restriction is that it is your own original work. You can find out more about the legend here: http://creativeardagh.
You can enter from where ever you are in the world by post or email.
Artworks sent by post should not exceed A4 size.
The closing date for submissions is: 5pm on 7th June 2015.
Please send all submissions to:
Creative Ardagh, Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre,
Ardagh, Co. Longford
or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The anthology will be launched as part of the Bilberry Sunday Event on the 26th July 2015 in Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre. This event will be hosted by Creative Ardagh in conjunction with County Longford Arts Officer Fergus Kennedy during the Cruthu Arts Festival. Those selected for the publication will get a chance to read their written piece or display the original artwork on the day.
