Presented as part of Age & Opportunity’s Bealtaine Festival – Ireland’s national celebration of the arts and creativity as we age.
This workshop will introduce printmaking to older people. Participants will – under the guidance of Marianne Heemskerk – be working with techniques of Drypoint and carborundum on Aluminium plates, and monoprinting; working from their own designs; and experimenting with print techniques and colour. No previous experience required.
Marianne Heemskerk is a locally-based visual artist. Originally from the Netherlands, Marianne has been living in Ireland for many years and has extensive experience in the practice and teaching of printmaking.
She has exhibited widely in Ireland and her work is in a number of public and private collections.
Materials are included and there will be a break for lunch.
