For those of you who have been to Féile na gCloch (Festival of Stone) on Inis Oírr, you may have taken part in the wonderful sketching workshops that take place as part of the festival. With this years festival going online again, the festival will once again host a sketching campaign and if that wasn't enough excitement will be giving away some spot prizes too.  

So wherever you are in the world and whatever age you are, get creative and get involved. You might want to draw, paint, cartoon or doodle your local dry stone wall or stone project that you are working on or check out some of the pictures from around Inis Oírr (the home of Féile na gCloch) below for inspiration.
