An interactive arts workshop in clay, weaving and painting, facilitated by Mayo Artsquad with a group of sixteen disabled adults from: the Rural Training Centre, the Connaught Creative Resource Centre and the National Learning Network. The workshops took place over a full day at the Artsquad Building, Castlebar.



“Everyone commented that they had a great day and said that if it were to become a regular occurrence they would definitely come again. From an Artsquad perspective we feel this format works well for a public event. As the participants make the choices around which activity they do and how long they want to spend at it. The informal approach creates an open atmosphere to the workshop and the idea of exploring and experimenting with materials comes to the fore”. (Mick smith, Artsquad supervisor)
