Our childhood dreams appear to be coming true because legendary artist, writer, TV and radio presenter, Don Conroy, is hosting a Draw with Don drawing session and book signing in our very own Gallery shop this Saturday, 27 October. 

 

*Internal screaming*

 

 

This free hour-long Halloween-themed drawing session will start at 11:30am. The event is suitable for children (/adults) aged 5+ and fancy dress is actively encouraged. Hope you're as excited as we are!

In related news we currently have the shop looking very Halloween-y indeed. Check out some of our spooooooky decorations, ghoooooooulish masks and creeeeeepy BOOks. 

 

 

 

 

We love these sinister pumpkin candle holders (€2.50). Mwah ha ha haaaa.

 

 

 

 

As you can see we also have Halloween colour/sticker & activity books, as well as masks that you can paint yourself (although I think you'll really scare your friends if you leave them just as they are).

 

 

 

 

And lest we forget one of our favourite spine-tingling books Tangleweed and Brine"a collection of thirteen dark, feminist retellings of traditional fairytales that follow in the tradition of Angela Carter; stories from Cinderella to Rumpelstiltskin, tales of mermaids and monsters, are given a unique witchy makeover". Double, double toil and trouble, etc.
