Monoprint Workshop | 13 - 16 years 2pm - 4pm


Venue: Black Church Print Studio, 4 Temple Bar, Dublin 2

Workshop facilitator: Chloe Brenan



These free workshops take place as part of the inaugural Cruinniú na nÓg, a national day of creativity for children and young people on June 23rd 2018. The workshops revolve primarily around the varied and dynamic process of Monoprint. They will encourage a broadened and experimental attitude towards image making, in addition to developing young people's practical skills by working in the dedicated and focused creative environment of Black Church Print Studio in the heart of Temple Bar. Beginning with drawing as the intitial format of image development, young people will explore line, tone, colour, gesture, and alternative concepts of drawing and mark making. This preliminary drawing-based research shall then be integrated into a series of printmaking processes, and shall ultimately be developed into a series of finished monoprints.


The morning workshop is designed for participants aged 10 - 12 years. Tickets available through eventbrite:

The afternoon Monoprint Workshop is available for older participants 13 - 16 years. Tickets available through eventbrite:



Black Church Print Studio is a printmaking facility and a collective with eighty-five visual artists as members working across traditional, experimental and educational methods. The organisation operates training and access programmes that facilitate printmaking throughout the visual arts sector. The studio has an established history of supporting strong creative and technical practice in lithography, etching, silkscreen and digital work. It provides artists with a shared workspace, equipment, and technical support that would be unavailable to an individual. It also has a strong artistic programme, which is open to the public, which includes two annual exhibitions, critical seminars, artist talks, demonstrations, workshops and open-days. It is funded by the Arts Council and Dublin City Council.



Cruinniú na nÓg celebrates and encourages children and young people's participation in culture and creativity.
