Kids’ Own and Cruinniú na nÓg at Sligo Library

We were delighted to host an event at Sligo Library on Friday 9th June as part of Cruinniú na nÓg Sligo where our associate artist Sarah Lundy held a wonderfully fun eco-workshop incorporating flora and fauna as a focus for the children.

In total we had 10 children in attendance who were all fascinated with Sarah’s collection of taxidermy and animals, most especially Fergus the frog who died from dehydration in the drought! The children drew bold posters of the four life cycles of a frog all inspired by Fergus. Also included in the workshop were Brendan the bullfinch and Terry the fox, both taxidermy animals, which Sarah uses to raise environmental awareness through creative engagement.

The children made plant rubbings of wildflowers, ferns and leaves and crafted clay miniatures of Sissy Swan, inspiring lots of quirky conversations and laughs.



We’d like to thank Sligo Library for having us! You can see more about Sarah Lundy and her work with Kids’ Own here.
