There were more civilians killed during the 1916 Easter Rising than British Soldiers or Irish Volunteers. These men, women, and children who were killed have no memorial. They lie in graves in Dublin… some forgotten, until now…

These are some examples of how your 3D art form house can look. It can be made out of any type of materials – felt, wool, clay, glass, wood, plastics etc. But remember it must be durable to withstand transportation and handling at the exhibition!
