Meet the Maker 

Meet the Maker Marble Arch Caves

Catherine Swan, a love for the great outdoors shines through in the unique and fine work created by this artist. 

Join Catherine Swan and hear how growing up in rural Northern Ireland and always having a love for the outdoors and everything that comes with it has influenced her art. As you watch Catherine at work you will see how she has taken inspiration from the animals, to the fields and mountains, to the rivers and lakes around her. Learn about her endless possibilities within painting and how she experiments with compositions, scale and colour to create something quirky and original.
As you wander viewing pieces of her unique artwork in our gift shop you will be instantly drawn to a piece of art that brings back fond memories of Summer strolls, childhood memories or home comforts. Her tantalising artwork is difficult to resist!
(Free Event: No booking required suitable for all ages)

Take a winter woodland walk through the majestic Cladagh Glen Nature Reserve with our Ranger, Kate Crane.  Listen as Kate tells the history of the woodland, see the canopy of trees around you, feel the fresh air and hear the rivers running deep beneath your feet through the Marble Arch Caves.  As you collect the materials required to make your native wreath, get back into nature and enjoy the serenity and tranquility of the forest. Returning to the warm ambience of the Visitor Centre you will join our crafty colleague, Claire Irvine who will provide inspiration  and assist you transform the raw materials into a stunning Christmas display.
