Creative Spark Print Studio is a non-profit twenty-four hour access printmaking 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.

The membership daily rate for our print studio is only €30, allowing anyone easy access to printing facilities when needed. Full-time membership grants you 24 hour access to workshop facilities, eligibility to submit work to future Creative Spark exhibitions, an opportunity to be part of a community of printmakers, and more. Further information can be found on this application form. You can also see some artworks of our existing members on the members page.

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.
