Notes on accessibility: We have tried to keep events as accessible as possible for people with varying levels of mobility.
- Events at Greywood Arts, with the exception of the lantern making workshop (in upstairs art studio), will be held on the ground floor and are wheelchair accessible.
- The Torchlight procession will remain on the road up to the metal bridge and back.
- Walks on Saturday & Sunday require the ability to manage the foot paths in the wood. However, if you would like to attend a walk and have concerns, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what we can do.
- The open air dance will be held next to the playground and should be easily accessible to all.

PROGRAMME LAUNCH & PERFORMANCE (Tuesday, Time TBC)
Léann Herlihy’s performance W O O D S H O P is presented in conjunction with the programme launch of Creative Killeagh, as well as Halloween. This will be a fun and intriguing evening for the entire family as we kick off a series of community arts events which will culminate on May Sunday, 2018.
Herlihy’s performance explores the motion of rocking – an homage to the motion of sawing and the history of Greywood Art’s building as a sawmill. The audience will be seated on rocking chairs created in the workshops prior to the event.
ARTIST TALK T (Thursday, 7pm)
Join us for a cosy evening in conversation with Léann in the library at Greywood Arts. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn how an artist conceives of and carries out her artistic process. We will also be screening ‘HANDS’, a documentary about furniture making by David Shaw-Smith for RTE from the late 1970’s.
Saturday, 28th October & Monday, 30th October :
W O O D S H O P WORKSHOPS
Bring the whole family to workshops where you will build your own rocking chairs! These rocking chairs will be exhibited at the Programme Launch and used for the audience to sit on during Léann’s performance. The rocking motion is in homage to the motion of sawing and the history of Greywood Art’s building as a sawmill. Construction will be child-safe, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Ages 1-100 welcome.
