Book Now

Free three-day printmaking workshop for adults: 10am to 1pm on 12th – 13th and 14th May

People will all levels of ability are welcomed as the workshop is aimed at beginners and at those who have experience!

Over three days’ artist Emma Finucane will bring participants through the monoprint, and drypoint printmaking process.
Drypoint is one of the simplest forms of Intaglio printing, the artist works directly on to the plate to create scratched surface that can then be printed multiple times. Participants will create their own plate and learn how to print on a small Etching press.
Monoprint is a single impression of an image made from a reprintable plate. Participants will explore monoprint through a combination of techniques e.g. drawing materials and fabric, collage and frottage, combining the spontaneity of printed inks and paper, creating a surface that is unlike any other art.

All materials will be provided.

To book a place please contact: Riverbank Box Office on 045 448327 or book directly at the box office in person. All bookings made online through will incur a €1 booking fee.
