Bealtaine 2015 - Burning Bright ProjectCroi Na Gaillimhe Lunch and Social Club
The first of our Bealtaine events kicked off last Wednesday when we attended the launch of the Burning Bright Project in Galway Arts Centre. Croi Na Gaillimhe is delighted to be part of the Burning Bright project. Through a series of workshops facilitated by artist Fiona Hession, participants created a light box (see photos) which featured lines from favourite poems, reflecting the Bealtaine theme this year “What land and Country is this. We are thrilled with the end result which will be on display in the Arts Centre, Dominick Street for the month of May, do pop in and have a look.
The aim of the Burning Bright project is on the creative process and not the end product. The lunch and Social Club will continue to work with Fiona who will guide participants through new art processes and methods of expression.
Our next and final Bealtaine event is again an art project. On Wednesday 20 May at 2:30pm until 4:00pm we will host a clay workshop titled ‘Leaves of Strength’ facilitated by the FORGE ARTISTS, New Road. Participants will make leaves from clay, using natural leaves as stamps. Why not join us….all welcome.
