Let’s Celebrate Winter: Family Drawing Workshop with Duffy Mooney-Sheppard
Saturday 11th December at 10am via Zoom


Join Duffy Mooney-Sheppard as she takes you on a drawing journey for all the family (from Ages 5+). Since the beginning, humans have marked time and created stories by noticing the seasons and watching the stars. Before we had books, these ancient people all across the globe, left their mark and told their stories through stone carvings and cave paintings. In this workshop, we will take inspiration from the symbols and patterns left to us by our ancestors at sites like Newgrange, the Chevreaux Caves and others to create our own large drawing to celebrate the Winter Solstice.

Participants will require:
• A4 sheets of paper or card
• glue stick/cello-tape or similar
• Something to draw and colour with (bring whatever you love to work with i.e. Crayons, pencils, pastels, chalk, paint)
Booking Via Eventbrite.
