Courses take place in my studio, part of a converted 18th century farmhouse, set in the idyllic rural landscape of County Clare, Ireland. A couple of hours drive from Dublin, and not far from Shannon airport, this is an area of great natural beauty, surrounded by mountains and lakes and just an hour from the Atlantic Coast and the unique Burren landscape. It is an area renowned for it's fishing, hill walking, inland water cruising and traditional music, offering a wide range of enjoyable activities to anyone visiting the area.
Courses are designed to meet your needs, at whatever level, from beginners to advanced. You can also request dates other than those advertised, if you have specific times or techniques you wish to explore. Please contact me to discuss this further.
The studio atmosphere is friendly and supportive, and the emphasis is on enjoying the creative process, whilst producing work that is beautiful and interesting to take home with you. Participants are encouraged to think creatively and be experimental in their approach.
Courses run with a minimum of two and maximum of six people, ensuring each participant receives individual attention.
A range of screen print and textile techniques are offered, including photographic screen processing (one of the few facilities in the country), ensuring a high standard of work.
