Discover how the Irish celebrate Spring around the world in this fun and creative craft workshop suitable for Primary School students.

Learn all about the Irish traditions of St. Brigid’s day, such as making nature tables and Brigid’s crosses, before exploring how other cultures welcome in Spring – from the Holi festival of colour to the Chinese Lantern festival. Using your imagination, travel from the past to the present, and explore the practices of the ancient Celts alongside the present day celebration of powerful women that Spring in Ireland has become.

As part of this workshop, you will create a range of colourful craft items to welcome in Spring, from Irish Brigid’s crosses to Polish Marzanna dolls.

All your class need is some paper (coloured and white), scissors, glue and markers or crayons to take part. (These will be provided for the on-site event)

Important: This workshop is designed for Primary School level students. This workshop is delivered virtually. Please do not journey to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum for this session.
