GRAVESTONE RUBBING EXPERIENCE AT KILKEA CASTLE
Reveal the past by marking out prints from intricate details on the monuments and headstones of the Fitzgerald family cemetery at Kilkea Castle, Co Kildare.
Artist and designer Angelina Foster uses gravestone rubbing to bring the past up close, introducing you to dramatic stories and legends as you trace Ireland’s traditions and symbols. This fun and absorbing activity will give you an appreciation of past craftsmanship and the stories buried in Ireland's Ancient East. It can also offer a wonderful way to explore and record family history and create unique genealogical records.

Kilkea was the seat of the Fitzgerald dynasty for hundreds of years. Join us to explore the pet’s cemetery and explore the old church graveyard, while we recount stories of monkeys, mermaids, evil eyes, wizard Earls, and the Silken Thomas’ table.

Learn a skill that will last a lifetime and make beautiful prints you can bring home with you. You will see these ancient carvings in new light as we make impressions with a variation of oriental and Awagami papers using different rubbing techniques.

To minimise waste and avoid the use of single use plastic, participants are asked to bring their own rubber gloves. Alternatively, you can purchase a pair of Marigolds from the organiser!

All other materials are provided.
