Summer fun for Helium’s Workshops in Limerick City

Helium Arts is launching a new series of art workshops in Limerick City for children with long term illnesses. These workshops all kick off in May and run for a period of several weeks. Over the course of these workshops, participants will work with Helium’s Creative Health Hub artist in Limerick, Paul Bokslag. They will take part in creative activities that are based on the participants’ own unique interests and ideas, in a fun and relaxing environment.

  • Workshops are free.
  • Medical cover will be provided by a trained professional.
  • The venue is wheelchair accessible.

  • Come prepared to get creative… Wear old clothes or bring an apron!
