Creative Zone

Our mission within the Creative Zone is to encourage people to explore the life and works of Seamus Heaney through the enjoyment of engaging arts and craft based activities, using Seamus Heaney’s work as a source of inspiration to fuel an imaginative response.

Seamus Heaney had a gift for taking the everyday ordinary, and creating something extraordinary through his use of words.

Have you heard of the saying, “a picture paints a thousands words”?  Well, we think that Seamus Heaney’s use of words paints pictures and lots of imagery emerges inviting a creative visual response.

So why not join us on a creative journey as we delve into Seamus Heaney’s word hoard to see what we can find? Let’s get creative!
