FREE ON-LINE CIRCUS WORKSHOPS

In response to the Covid-19 Pandemic and its requirement that young people stay at home with their families Core Creations has moved its youth workshops online.

Even better they are offering FREE Circus Workshops based around Creativity and Wellness.

The free on-line circus classes will keep the whole family entertained and help young people keep up and maintain their circus skills while at home.

Each Monday at 3.30pm Core Creations we will be posting videos created by its fantastic tutors. However participants must complete workshop 1 & 2 before they can partake in the video tutorials. Workshops 1 & 2 are centred on Circus craft, giving clear instructions of how to make circus equipment from household items.

The project is funded by Waterford City and County Council.  Pre COVID -19 the workshops took place each Monday during school terms in St. Olaf’s Church Peter St. Waterford.
