Macnas At School - Education

Our workshops are designed to empower children and young people to use and express the language of the imagination in new and meaningful ways, and as a tool to solve problems, innovate, create.

Tirellan National School


Program - Sculptural Creatures

Macnas Facilitator - Tom Meskell

Creative Associate - Yvonne Cullivan

Over 8 sessions pupils created amazing and powerful creatures from their imagination and at the end of the week did a petit Macnas Parade for the whole school! We LOVED working with the next generation of magic makers and were really impressed by their hard work and amazing creativity!

This program was funded and supported by Creative Schools program and the amazing teacher Karla Bedecked and the principle Kieran Tierney.
