Join Sinéad for a scavenger inspired Art & Craft workshop, using materials from all around you.

This pre-recorded event will take place live on our Facebook page on Saturday, 12th of June. 10.25 am – 10.45 am

**No Booking Required**

Creative Art for Kids was established by Sinéad O’Hanlon, whose love of art and craft has naturally lead her into working with children in this area. Sinéad believes that art, craft, and design should be an essential part of a child’s development and she hopes to develop their natural creativity through fun craft activities. These activities are designed to help build a child’s confidence, attention span, dexterity, problem-solving skills, and, of course, their sense of imagination.

Materials needed for this interactive workshop are listed below.
