Creative Schools

We had our final session this week with Katerina Gribkoff from the Burren College of Art. During her time with us, we have learnt how to forage for plants and make dyes from them, we have looked to the plants and flowers growing around us for inspiration and we have created our own sketches, painted using these natural dyes. The final paintings, which can be seen below, will be exhibited as part of Cruinniú na nóg at the Burren College of Art on Saturday 11th of June.
