Aimed at children over the age of 5 years, and up to 12 years, these workshops on Saturday 21st July are perfectly timed to allow parents to attend a movie of their choice and listen to a directors’ post-screening Q&A or discussion. Our workshops are led by talented and experienced artists and musicians. Each workshop is two hours long, and costs €10 per child per workshop. Tickets are available here or at the Box Office at Headfort from Friday 20th July. Places are limited so booking online in advance is advised.
ART ABOUT FILMS – Saturday 12noon
Inspired by the two animated films in our programme, The Breadwinner and Sgt Stubby: An American Hero, the Guth Gafa children’s workshop will use creative ideas from these two films to inspire the children in making musical and artistic pieces of work.
FLYING MACHINES WORKSHOP – Saturday 2.45pm
Inspired by the themes of the film The Man Who Wanted to Fly, this workshop involves a children’s paper-plane making, design and flying workshop. The session will end with the first-ever County Meath Paper-Plane Design and Flying Competition.
Parents can ‘check in’ children between the ages of 5 and 12, for a 2 hour session, at a cost of €10 giving them ample time to enjoy a film, a Q&A and a coffee.
