Children, Family, and Youth Workshops & Activities

Arts and Heritage Workshops for all ages

Scéal Heritage Consultancy specialise in the creation and facilitation of unique and engaging heritage and culture workshops, events, and activities to suit all forms of child, youth, and family audience. These workshops teach participants about history, archaeology, science, and culture through hands-on, enjoyable activity and associated craft, making the learning process fun and unforgettable!

Scéal Heritage have been a member of the Heritage in Schools Heritage Expert panel since 2013, and of the Creative Schools Creative Associates panel since 2020. Working with school children and youths in these roles have allowed us to work in a very broad range of educational collaborations with children exploring their local and national culture and heritage, helping thousands to engage with their past and discover their creativity.

We provide workshops and activities for national and local events and festivals throughout the year, including Heritage Week, Culture Night, Crinniú na nÓg, Science Week, World Book Day, National Children’s Book Festival, and Biodiversity Week. Events are specially tailored to suit our audiences and themes, and to provide maximum enjoyment for all involved!
