Cruinniú na nÓg

June 10th, 2022

The children have been working with Katerina Gribkoff on the project for the past number of months, they have learnt how to make their own inks and dyes from plants and flowers, they have explored their own locality for inspiration and they have each produced a beautiful ink watercolour based on a Burren flower. The whole process has been documented in video with voiceovers by the children as well as poetry and song composed and performed by the children

Today we travelled to the Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughan to see our finished ink drawings on display and to present our documentary to our school parents.

As part of Cruinniú na nÓg, a day of free creativity for children, which takes place on June 11th, the paintings will be available to be viewed by the public on this date and the documentary will be available to view online on Creative Ireland Clare Facebook page and on the Clare library Youtube channel

Design and Make

The senior room children got to try out their home-made anemometers today. An anemometer is a device that is used to measure wind (something there is an abundance of in Fanore), specifically its speed and direction.
