Print Studio

Creative Spark Print Studio is a non-profit twenty-four hour access print workshop and visual artists’ resource organisation, committed to providing facilities and opportunities to emerging and established visual artists. The studio aims to provide membership to creative practitioners from Louth and the border areas. We aim to develop as an education resource to provide print training in the region. We are committed to collaboration with other arts organizations on a local, national and international level, striving to promote printmaking as a dynamic, innovative, contemporary medium. The newly equipped print studio has facilities (listed below) for etching, screen-print, relief printmaking, textile and digital printing. We run classes regularly and are interested in hearing from individuals and groups interested in learning.
