Letterpress Printmaking Workshop: Celebrating Suffragettes
Ballitore, Co. Kildare
20 August - 15 October 2022
Join in with a creative letterpress printmaking workshop where you’ll celebrate the suffragettes who used this classic printing technique to get their message out!

In a day packed with stories about inspiring women, as well as creativity, you’ll learn about Mary Leadbeater and other women lost in history who used print powerfully to make the case for social justice. They wielded the power of print and the pamphet in the 18th- and 19th- century abolitionist and suffragette movements to great effect!

Drawing on their example, you’ll learn how to print postcards with poems or words inspired by these courageous women, using vintage text on a mobile letterpress. This fun and supportive workshop in the Blueway Art Studio in Narraghmore, Co. Kildare, gives you a great way to uncover your own creativity and celebrate the work of the creative women who went before us!
