Up-cycled Scented Candle

Wednesday 11th July @ 10.30 am-12.30 pm
Haven’t we all got those stubby bits of candles that won’t re-light? Bring them along to this fabulous workshop and we will melt them and scent them using Rose, Lavender and Lemon Grass which will give them new life in beautiful shells.

Seashore wall hanging

Wednesday 18th July @ 10.30 am-12.30 pm
Using gathered treasures from the sea shore you will create a beautiful Wind Chime to hang indoors or outside.  A variety of local seashells, beach glass, pearls, driftwood, coloured wire and bells will all be provided but you are more than welcome to bring pieces you would like to include.

“A Letter for me?” Heritage and craft morning

Thursday 19th July 10.30 am-12.30 pm
Artist Nicky Dowd has been collecting and recording stories about the importance of letters that kept Irish emigrants connected with home for over 20 years.  See original documents she has collected, view a short film of emotional and humorous interviews and see the unveiling of her unique art installation. You can also make your very own small tea light glass to take home, or gift to someone special.

Driftwood signs

Wednesday 25th July @ 10.30 am-12.30 pm
Come and make any sign you want using maritime themed stencils, unicorns, animals, shells, printed and painted letters. Great fun and a fab surprise gift for someone special.
