24 Hour international printmaking event at Limerick Printmakers
24 HOURS TO…MAKE A PRINT!!!
Limerick Printmakers are holding a 24-hour print event which will run from 11am this Saturday 9th May until 11am on Sunday 10th May.
Approximately 16 artists from Galway Print Studio, Cork Printmakers, Damn Fine Print, Limerick Printmakers and Print Van Paris will take part. The artists will arrive at St. John’s Square with just their tools (no pre-made work allowed) and will work intensively for 24 hours in order to produce work of the very highest calibre.
There will be public access on Saturday where members of the public are invited to come along between 2pm and 5pm and observe the artists at work.
The results will feature in an exhibition to be held at the John’s Square facility from 11.30 to 1pm on Sunday 10th May.
Also beginning at 11.30 on Sunday, there will also be a pop-up press in the Square for anyone who wishes to come along and learn about the print-making process.
Bring along a t-shirt, pillowcase etc & the printmakers will be happy to print on it for them.
Come & say hello, ask lots of questions, pull a print – it’s what weekends are all about!
