Children will learn about different aspects of life in the medieval period of Ireland. Using a hands on approach, facilitator Katherine McCormack, brings this historical period to life. The children will get to interact with a number of replica artefacts including daily items such as bowls and spoons. They will also get to try on a full scale Anglo Norman helmet to see if they have what it takes to be a medieval knight!!
The workshop will also introduce children to the history of manuscript making, and each child will get to make their own manuscript to take home using authentic feather quills and ink.
This workshop is free of charge but pre-registration is essential.
Please note that parents/guardians must remain present for the duration of the workshop.
