Surreal Christmas Mashup workshops with Hunt Museum

Using Virtual Reality, children will encounter the hybrid and imagined animals who inhabit the fantastical and surreal worlds of Garden of Earthly Delights, an iconic Renaissance painting by Hieronymus Bosch. They will then explore characters, iconography and colours associated with Christmas and mix them up to create their own unique clay-based Christmas tree decorations. These will then be displayed on the Christmas tree located in the communal area of the Knockalisheen Direct Provision Centre so that other residents can enjoy them.

No of Workshops: 2

Workshop 1 at Hunt Museum to view VR exhibition, develop ideas and clay decorations (Wednesday 15th December)

Workshop 2 at Knockalisheen Direct Provision Centre where children will paint their decorations (Friday 17th December)

Both workshops will be provided for specific groups of children in Knockalisheen Direct Provision Centre and are not open to the general public.
