AN exhibition by fourth-class pupils from Drimnagh Castle primary school in Dublin is one of 19 craft and design projects that are on show at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, Dublin, until December 3.

The Drimnagh boys' fabric and fibre project, entitled: 'What I Want to be When I Grow Up', is one of a selection made by children throughout the country utilising various materials such as wood, clay, textiles, wire, paper and glass.

The Shaping our World Through Making exhibition is a product of the CRAFTed Learning Skills for Life Primary Schools programme, which involved students from junior infants to sixth class.
