Community Workshop

Introductory workshop on using the MiScreen digital screen maker to produce A4 size silk screens for screen printing onto fabric or paper. This one day workshop is aimed at artists or illustrators who want to experiment with bringing digital images from the computer screen to a silk screen using a unique digital thermal process that only takes 30 seconds to create a silkscreen. Each participant will have the opportunity to create their own screen to take away, along with test prints on paper and onto a cotton tote bag.

All materials will be provided and laptops will be available to use for the design software.

Phoebe Dick grew up in an agricultural community not far from Manorhamilton and has been based in the town since 2012. Her diverse practice encompasses private work such as writing poetry, the production of visual work, and more socially engaged actions such as hosting events in the community.Since moving to Manorhamilton Dick has been awarded funded residencies and exhibited at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre, (having her first solo show there in 2013), and in The Centre of Contemporary Art, Torun, Poland, as part of the LOCIS project (2014). Dick is actively involved with The Leitrim Sculpture Centre Print Studios and is currently coordinating a programme of "peer to peer" printmaking workshops in the studios. This social side of Dicks practice rests heavily on her ability and desire to connect with people from all walks of life in various situations and settings.

Stuart Lawn is an ex-post punk bassist, ex-indie A&R man, ex-sound engineer, ex-record producer, ex-IT support engineer, ex-technical director and is constantly looking for the next -ex! He is currently the director of FABLAB Manorhamilton, a digital fabrication facility and creative makerspace in rural Leitrim. He believes, given half a chance everyone has a great design or an innovative product inside them and he really wants to be there to help make that spark of creativity happen.
