13. Ireland (cc)

Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle for its beautiful landscapes; it is the second largest of the British Isles, located east of continental Europe. The Irish people are of Celtic origin, leading to many of its traditions. Farming once was the traditional occupation of Ireland and the Celtic style has many stylized plants and animals; not many people. Celtic design uses curves, ellipses and spirals; usually made into intricate geometric patterns that were found on shields, bowls, jewelry and even pottery. Once Christianity took hold in Ireland, the Celtic designs combined with Christian designs on religious pieces. The four how-to crafts in this program include: Celtic Mermaid; Potato Putty; Bodhran (Drum) and Biddle (Drumstick); Illuminated Manuscript. 2007/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
