Children’s History Workshop: Illustrating History with John Farrelly

This event has ended

Online, Saturday 15th May

Join Dublin’s Historian-in-Residence for Children Dervilia Roche and illustrator, cartoonist, and author of the Deadly Irish History children's book series John Farrelly in this free, interactive Zoom workshop for children aged 9-12 years old, as part of National Drawing Day.

Learn about the history of the Vikings and the Celts, find out how John comes up with the ideas for his drawings, and take part in live drawing demonstrations to create your own illustrations. Please note, to take part in the illustrations, children will need a pencil, some paper, an eraser, a black marker and a black pen.

As this is a family workshop, interactivity is encouraged so please turn on your video during the session and we ask that children are supervised by adults throughout the workshop. Please log in 10 minutes prior to the start time so participants can be verified before joining the event.

The event will take place online using Zoom. The Zoom link for this online event will be sent to you in a reminder email, 24 hours prior to the event.

The Creative Residency @ Richmond Barracks and is made by Dublin City Council Culture Company in partnership with Dublin City Libraries.
