Bagenal’s Museum will host historically themed arts and craft workshops, which are open to families with children, aged seven and up on 13th, 14th, 16th, and 17th, August.

Summer is nearly over but to make life a tiny bit more bearable your children can take part in our workshops. They will create items such as 16th century wall hangings, pottery, and other pieces of art that relate to the history of the area.

The workshops take place from – 1pm with numbers limited to 20 children, dressed for mess. You can pay a daily rate of £2.50 or £8 for all four sessions. Parents are encouraged to stay, but it is not essential.

Tuesday 14th: Heraldry and Shields

Thursday 16th: Clay Pottery

Friday 17th: Wall Hangings and Stained Glass Painting

Commenting on the week’s activities Noreen Cunningham, Museum Curator, said, “This is the first summer workshops we have held and it offers children a fun way of learning about their history.”

Visitors can also explore the galleries and see Newry and Mourne’s history on display including the new exhibitions ‘A Mourne Miscellany’ and ‘Sporting Traditions through the Ages in Newry and Mourne’.
