Costume Workshop - Celtic Heroes!
A fun opportunity for children aged 5-12 (and their adults!) to design and make a St.Patrick’s day costume based on the theme of Celtic Heroes, theatre and Costume Designer Deirdre Dwyer will guide you through the design and creation of your costume, using materials that can be found at home or easily sourced, such as T-shirts, blankets, wool, card, and paint.
Design a costume based on Celtic Heroes Cuchulainn, Queen Medb, Fionn MacCumhail or Niamh Cinn Oir using these for videos for inspiration and guidance.
Learn how to transform an old oversized T-shirt into a tunic, embellish your outfit with a Celtic Brooch, fashion a cloak, make an awesome headband - or all of the above. To share your creations with us, ask an adult to upload a photo of you wearing your costume to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter mentioning Graffiti and Cork City Council.
