Castlecomer Witch Trials Art Workshop

Children’s Art Workshop: Craft Your Own Witches Puppet

Step into the mystical realm of Witchcraft Wonders during Kilkenny’s 700th anniversary! Explore the ancient echoes of the 1324 Kilkenny Witchcraft Trial, where Alice Kyteler wove spells and Petronella de Meath danced with destiny. Now, join us on an enchanting journey—a fusion of magic, history, and pure fun!

Our guide? The talented Rachel Burke, a Fine Artist rooted in Kilkenny. With her expert touch, children will delve into the art of collage, shaping their very own puppets. These whimsical creations will spin tales of the Kilkenny Witch Trials, igniting imaginations and celebrating centuries of wonder.

Create Your Own Puppet: Let your creativity soar as you breathe life into your puppet—each thread a whisper from the past. Don’t miss this spellbinding adventure
