Christmas Creative Writing Workshops for Children
Stories are part of the magic of Christmas; think of the Nativity, A Christmas Carol or The Night Before Christmas. Why not give your children the chance to make some Christmas magic of their own and write a Christmas story, with a creative writing workshop?

Writer Derbhile Graham will help the children write their story, creating wacky characters and taking them on Chirstmas-themed adventures. They can share their stories with their family and friends or even give them as a gift. These workshops are aimed at 8-12 year olds, to give them a chance to be part of the excitement of Winterval.

The workshops will take place at Greyfriars Gallery on the following dates.

Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th November.

Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th December.

Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th December.

Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st December.

Each workshop runs from 1pm-3pm and they cost €10 for one child, €19 for two children and €27 for three children. There are 10 places available on each workshop. Please book your children into the workshops in advance to avoid disappointment.

Call Derbhile on 087 6959799 or 051 386250 to book your place
