The Living Past Tour
Children are transported through time to see how Irish people lived in past times.
This hands on workshop is fun, informative, immersive and curriculum enhancing.
Groups can do any two of the following activities:
Wattle and Daub – This ancient building method involves students building a wall of wooden strips called wattle and a composite of mud and clay called daub. Children love this hands activity.
Spinning and Weaving – Students learn about the ancient skill of spinning using the wool from the Soay sheep which live in Craggaunowen. Groups also weave their own wrist band to take home as a souvenir.
Warrior face paint – Ancient warriors used blue paint on their faces before heading into war. Children have their faces painted and hear the stories of the ancient warriors of Ireland in the process.
*Tribal Drumming – This fun and interactive workshop focuses on the ancient affects music has on us. Groups sit together and play percussive instruments while learning about different rhythms and how they have inspired us for generations
