During the winter of 2011 Cáirde Killeen organised a series of Master Classes in Killeen Community Centre. These once off classes were designed to be hosted by local people who have experience or an interest in the topic of the night. With the economy pushing people to think of alternative ways of saving money, we were able to offer local producers and crafters the opportunity to advertise their produce or skill to the local community. Not only were they giving demonstrations but some were taking orders for their work on the night!
The seven workshops were very well attended and lots of fun and laughter ensued.There was such a relaxed and organised approach to the evenings that many people returned to attend other classes. We were able to offer these classes due to funding we received from An Phobal.
The fact that someone local was available to supply the product ensures that our community is supporting each other locally and empowering ourselves to keep growing economically, socially and progressively. Master classes we enjoyed were: Cooking Made Easy, Hand Made Crafts, Creative Writing, Indian Head Massage, Keep Fit Dance class and a special Christmas Evening with cake icing and wreath making.
We wish all the participants the best for the future with their respective enterprises and we would like to thank most sincerely all who came to the classes and made the atmosphere so enjoyable.
