Cruinniú na nÓg in Carrick-on-Shannon and Manorhamilton

Plaster Cast at Leitrim Design House, Carrick-on-Shannon

Join in on the fun and get creative with The Leitrim Design House in Carrick-on-Shannon and The Glens Centre, Manorhamilton as they celebrate creativity in young people.


Cruinniú na nOg this Saturday June 23 is a national day to celebrate and encourage children and young people’s participation in culture and creativity through the arts.
Events are free, local and activity-based. Events are funded by the Leitrim County Arts office under the Creative Ireland programme.


To celebrate this special day the Leitrim Design House are holding a free drop in children’s workshop with visual artist Kate Murtagh Sheridan on Saturday from 2 – 4pm outdoors on The Dock plaza.
In this alternative plaster casting workshop children will have a wonderful opportunity to explore a unique way of plaster casting whilst letting their imaginations run riot and making their own plaster plaque from scratch.
Participants investigate texture and pattern in their environment by pressing found objects, both man-made and natural, into the clay that they then cast. Remember to wear suitable clothes for doing, making and having fun!
The Leitrim Design House is a not for profit organisation committed to nurturing and promoting Irish art, craft and design.
If you are interested in exploring your creativity keep an eye on us for further art events and activities over the Summer months follow them on FB/TheLeitrimDesign House.com and on www.leitrimdesignhouse.ie

The Glens Centre are hosting an Open Mic Street Session for Young People on the Market Square, Manorhamilton from 4-7pm.
