Creative Zone

The Creative Zone is a space for everyone, young and old.

You can create your masterpiece by taking part in the arts and crafts on offer. Leave your mark by adding to our designated wall spaces: Seamus Heaney portrait wall, creative writing/word hoard wall, arts and poetry wall and favourite poem voting wall. Dress up and have fun or just chill out, grab a book to read and relax on the bean bags.

 July in the Creative Zone
This July take part in the many exciting things happening at Seamus Heaney HomePlace, Creative Zone. 

‘The Blackbird of Glanmore’ Mosaic
Throughout the month of July you can help us create a mosaic with pre-cut tiles to make a wonderful image based on Seamus Heaney’s poem ‘The Blackbird of Glanmore’.
“On the grass when I arrive,
Filling the stillness with life,
But ready to scare off
At the very first wrong move.
In the ivy when I leave.
It’s you, blackbird, I love.”
Weave making, canvas painting, stone painting and storytelling will also be taking place over the month of July. Creative officers are present to assist and inspire.
