In this virtual workshop with artist Rosemarie Langtry, children will learn how to create an Easter Tree inspired by objects from Athlone Castle collection.

With two print-at-home Easter Egg templates: one for small children to colour in and a second for the older children to design, this easy to follow tutorial is a fun way to create a unique Easter decoration.


The workshop will premiere on Athlone Castle’s social channels on Saturday 3rd April at 10am
