This showcase celebrate a collaboration between the DCCoI CRAFTed primary schools programme and the EYCH. Schools across the country responded to the theme Making Places: Sharing Heritage. The event will take place in Narrative4 which is located in the old Limerick library building, a fitting venue, as the theme for Heritage Week 2018 is Sharing Stories. The week is a chance to share heritage stories in new ways. A number of events will take place in the space for the duration of the week. These include an object story exchange led by Narrative4. There will also be a number of craft and design based workshops which focus the learning that happens when we embrace discovery, creativity and experimentation. All events are offered free of charge for National Heritage Week.

Come embrace discovery, creativity and experimentation and try your hand at these FREE workshops:
