Workshops for €2 per person
Soap workshop (for children under 6)
You might not realise it, but the Celts liked to look care of themselves, by shaving, doing their hair… and using soap!
Each participant will be able to take away a small bar of soap that they have made themselves.
Make and decorate a pot out of clay. Learn about and try out the different techniques that the Celts used including hand building, slab work and coiling. Participants can go home with their creation, which they will have decorated themselves.
From wicker to hazel wood…anything can be woven into a basket!
Learn about basketry techniques by creating a small wicker (or hazel wood) and rattan basket.
Participants will be able to take what they have made home with them.
Find out about weaving techniques on replica pieces. Participants will weave with wool using a needle and you’ll be given little pieces of fabric that you can keep at the end of the experience.
Fire-lighting and fibula workshop (from 10 years old)
Discover the different techniques used by the Celts to light fires (friction, percussion etc.). Try one out yourselves: a Celtic fire starter!
And, from a copper wire, you can pretend you’re a blacksmith or bronze worker to create a fibula, an ancestor of the modern safety pin.
Participants can take their fibula home with them.
