Take Time Out for Yoga

31 03 2015

Take the opportunity to relax with a Yoga session by the creek at Arts in the Olives in 2015.

Shirley Lake is the Yoga tutor this year and she will be a familiar face to a number of locals who regularly attend her Kerry classes and go  home glowing with health.

Shirley’s yoga session will start at 9.00 am and last about one and a half hours. Working outdoors is an experience that Shirley is anticipating with pleasure.  This opportunity was enjoyed by a good number of people last year and comes highly recommended.

The class can be booked online or on the day at the registration tent.

Saturday Workshops

28 02 2011

On the Saturday before the main day of the festival, Sunday, the olive grove is a hive of activity. Stall holders are setting up, the foodies are busy moving in kitchens, marquees, stages, bunting,  signage- it’s all happening.

But- if you were to wander around between jobs you would find a few quiet corners of very intense creativity. Down by the creek is basketry with Therese Flynn Clark. Further afield, over the creek is Gilbert Louttit and his Blacksmithing. Actually, it’s maybe not so quiet at  the blacksmithing but certainly busy and intense.

When so many people are creating and learning the energy is almost palpable. The Saturday workshops are an opportunity for those busy on the Sunday to have a chance at making something or for those interested in the bigger project to have time to complete it.
