Discover how the Irish celebrate Spring around the world in this fun and creative craft workshop suitable for students aged 6 – 12 years old.
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 needs is some paper (coloured and white), scissors, glue and markers or crayons to take part.
