Graiguenamanagh Library Witch Trials Art Workshop

Puppetry & Potions: Calling all young adventurers! Step into Kilkenny’s spellbinding history during our 700th anniversary celebrations.  Unravel the secrets of the 1324 Witchcraft Trial, where legends like Alice Kyteler and Petronella de Meath became etched in time. 

Under the guidance of the acclaimed artist Rachel Burke, you’ll master the magical art of puppet-making. Each creation becomes a storyteller, weaving a narrative as rich and intriguing as Kilkenny’s own chronicles.

So, are you ready to conjure up your own puppet? Join us for a workshop where history comes to life in your hands. It’s not just a craft; it’s an adventure!
