Createschool Film

The Legends of Wicklow

Fri 10 - 19 Nov

Visual Art

Opening Thursday, November 9th at 6pm

Wicklow's shores have known many visitors over the centuries. They all brought their fair share of myths and legends. Createschool have taken these stories and created a series of 5 short films and boldly titled it (…drum roll…) - “The Legends of Wicklow”

The exhibition will feature three of these films:

  • A Tale To Tell - (The History of Storytelling in Wicklow)
  • The Quiet Pilgrim - (St. Kevin)
  • Snakes & Sermons - (St. Mhantáin Featuring St. Patrick)

Be sure to check out some of the stars of the film (specially created customised Lego mini-figures), a selection of the hand-made sets and several behind the scenes shots.

After the success of their wonderfully original and innovative film “Freedom - A 1916 Story”. Createschool return to launch their latest work. Using stop motion animation, handmade sets and customised LEGO mini figures they have created a series of short films that will explore some of the great stories, myths, legends and characters of Wicklow in their usual engaging and entertaining style.

This exhibition is part of YARN Storytelling Festival. Now in its eigth year, Yarn is a community-based non-profit making festival that strives to bring the wonderful art-form of storytelling to as many people in our community as possible.

Createschool are grateful for the financial support of Wicklow County Council and An Chomhairle um Oideachas Gaeltachta & Gaelscolaíochta that made this film possible.
