A large scale, ongoing Interactive Installation Project – developed by visual artist TUNDE TOTH.

6 – 22 August 2013

Venue: `The Barracks`, Low Street, Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny

Inspired by workshops facilitated by the artist as part of the National Drawing Day events at the Butler Gallery in Kilkenny City in 2013, this programme is designed to take these workshops to a different level creating an ongoing, interactive, inclusive, participatory project `moving` between two venues and featured in two arts festivals in Co. Kilkenny. The project started at The Abhainn Ri Festival in Callan in July and continues at Tunde`s temporary exhibition space in Thomastown during the 40th Kilkenny Arts Festival.

Visitors and workshop participants are invited to contribute to the large scale, ongoing indoor/outdoor installation by making striking, colourful butterflies – using traditional Origami techniques, contemporary Silk Fibre Papermaking processes and plaster cloth sculpting/modelling.

This is a family oriented programme: all workshops are suitable for children from 7 years of age, young people and adults!

6th – 7th – 8th August (Tues-Wed-Thurs):  11am – 1pm

12th – 13th – 14th August (Mon – Tues – Wed):  11am – 1pm

€ 15 per participant per day, including all materials and your own unique butterfly to take with you!
