The holiday prep in in full swing now! Thanks a mil to all of those who joined us at the Christmas Workshop on Saturday.
Just an update on our schedule for the coming week…
Toddler Play & Story & a Craft finished up last week, so we just have CREATIVE STEAM and YOUNG CREATORS final classes on today and tomorrow from 3.30-5pm.
We have two more Open Studio sessions left- one this Saturday, December 14th and again on Saturday, December 21st from 10am-1pm. All ages are invited to drop in and use up those Punchcards before we finish up.
And our Arty Party to say good bye and thank you to all of the families that have made the last 2.5 years so enjoyable and rewarding will take place on Tuesday, December 17th from 3-5pm. It’s a chance to pop in, make a Christmas craft to bring home and spread some festive cheer. Hope to see you soon!

Closing of the Creativity Lab Announcement

A letter to all of the families that have been part of our Creativity Lab – it is with a touch of sadness but also anticipation of exciting new things to come, that we announce that the Creativity Lab Oranmore will be closing at the end of the year. We have had an amazing journey but after 2.5 years of running the space, it is time for the three of us to explore other opportunities and pursue new challenges.

Toodlelou is not going away, it just isn’t keeping up a permanent home. Lindsay looks forward to devoting more time to running creative STEAM workshops in schools, festivals, events and at Pop-Up workshops in Oranmore, Galway and further afield. She will be partnering with other amazing artists, scientists, community groups and organisations to develop new experiences for curious young minds for years to come. The website and our social media pages will keep you up to date on where you can find her next!

Eleanor is planning to bring animation workshops to schools and local community groups around Galway. She will also be spending more time on her music, with a busy schedule of singing events as part of the Galway 2020 programme. She can be reached at and 086.211.5271.

Ailish will be continuing her Art Psychotherapy Galway work as well as art workshops for children and adults and other creative projects in 2020. She can be found at and can be reached at and 087.760.7440.

Lindsay will share news of Eleanor and Ailish’s new projects as well so that you can avail of their wonderful work in future. And the three of us plan to reunite for special events whenever we can!

The Lab will host its final Open Studio on December 21st. That means that we have 5 more weeks of Saturday Open Studios for you to visit, so please so come along and join us before we finish up, particularly those who still have visits left on Punch Cards. We’re more than happy to answer any queries regarding our news so don’t hesitate to get in touch by email at

We’re also happy to share that we’re planning a big goodbye arty party on Friday, December 13th from 3-5pm. Please drop in to make a few final Toodlelou masterpieces and help us go out with a bang!

Running the Lab has been a joyous and incredible experience- thank you to all of the families who have made us a part of your children’s lives. We will look forward to seeing them through schools and festivals and events in the not-to-distant future.


Lindsay, Eleanor and Ailish
