Wainfest Launch 2019
17th Meán Fómhair / 17th September

Venue: Oakfield Park, Raphoe                 Time: 11:00am                 Opening by: The Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Nicholas Crossan

Oakfield Park is one of Donegal’s best loved attractions, so what better
place to launch our festival. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy
a stroll through a lush landscape of parklands and mature woodlands
entwined with over 4 km of narrow gauge railway track or take a tour
around the beautiful grounds of the lower park. Take the opportunity
to connect with heritage, stories and nature, meet the Wainfest
team and learn more about what we have in store for you during the
festival. Children can make a wish at Oakfield Park’s Faerie tree, while
navigating their way through adventures on extensive walks and
trails. They will also get the opportunity to meet The Dragonologist
Professor Peartree, and listen to a few tales from Perrin the Elf.

                                                                                                                                                            3

     Fab labs provide widespread access to modern
     means for invention and creativity.

     Comprising off-the-shelf, industrial-grade fabrication tools, wrapped
     in open source software, they are increasingly being used as tools for
     community engagement. As part of a global network of around 1500
     Labs, Spraoi Agus Sport have now established a Fablab in the heart of
     Inishowen.

     This hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the concept
     of making things using digital fabrication technologies. Utilising a
     combination of Laser Cutters, Vinyl Cutters, 3D Printers and some
     computer design tricks, participants will assemble and personalise
     small items that they can take home at the end of the session. Four
     SNA’s also in attendance.

     No experience necessary.
