The Heritage Council is calling on children across the country to put their imagination to good use this summer by using LEGO bricks to recreate their favourite example of Irish built, natural or cultural heritage.
To provide some inspiration and guidance, LEGO brick artist Jessica Farrell will build a sample model every week and will post the step-by-step plan on the Heritage Council Facebook page. The sample models will include:
- Built Heritage – Traditional thatch cottage; High Cross
- Natural Heritage – Red Fox; Hedgehog; native Irish honeybee with flower
- Cultural Heritage – Celtic interlace pattern; Galway Hooker boat
