Join dlr and Wicklow Willow as we learn how to make Totem Poles and Wigwams as part of Summer Outdoors in dlr!

In a series of video workshops we will show children and adults how to forage for materials and then how to work together to create a highly decorative, colourful and creative Totem Pole as well as a wonderful, fun Wigwam to play in all summer!

dlr will premiere a Wicklow Willow video workshop each day at 12 noon from Wednesday 9th June to Saturday 12th June on the dlr YouTube Channel here

Workshop 1: Foraging for Materials – Aoife will guide children and their parents into their local green areas, woods and laneways to carefully look for suitable materials for their totem and wigwam.

Workshop 2: Making your Totem Pole – This workshop will show children how to clean, paint and put up their totem pole with parental guidance.

Workshop 3: Building a Wigwam – In this workshop, children and parents will learn how to build their Wigwam using their gathered materials. They will learn to weave, tie and support their wigwam so it lasts the whole Summer! 

Workshop 4: Decorating your Wigwam – Children will learn how to decorate their wigwam using wool, string, paint and upcycling techniques.

Note:These workshops are for children working together with and being supervised by an adult.
