Here at The Hunt Museum we are always open to collaborating with adult learner groups through specific programming or just through the use of our spaces. Watch this space and keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter for information on our role in Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival 2017 this April.
Tactile Explorations – CPD arts workshop for Early Years practitioners with Eilis Murphy

This workshop will introduce participants to art & crafts techniques relating to printing and the creation of large scale wool artwork. In line with the Síolta and Aistear frameworks, great emphasis will be placed on experimentation, idea generation and theme development so that these creative activities can be planned and implemented in an early years setting.
