FAMILY WORKSHOP: All Aboard! Art Project for Children with Shaza O’Hara 

  • Swinford Cultural Centre, Station Road, Swinford, co. mayo (map)

Learn about the history of the old Swinford railway station, and inspired by stories, music and sounds discover within this world, colour shape and texture.

Originally part of the Collooney & Claremorris Railway line the Former Goods Store at Swinford, saw the arrival of the railway in the late nineteenth century and with it fire and smoke!! Recently restored by Mayo County Council the Swinford Cultural Centre building once formed part of an ensemble of railway buildings including the Station Master’s House, water tower and signal box. This hands on workshop for children delivered by Shaza O’Hara will explore the re-adaption of this railway structure and buildings through various mediums including printing and collage. A fantastic opportunity for children to experience the fascinating stories of adaption and reuse in this fun-filled and engaging art workshop.

Max number of twenty children 20.

Children must be accompanied by a adult.
