Reflecting on Mary Shackleton Leadbeater, and other women lost in history, social justice, the power of the pamphet in 1700's abolitionism and suffragette eras. Mary's house is in front of my studio in The Tanyard, Ballitore, Co Kildare. Ballitore is a heritage village, famous for it's Quaker history, and the Shackleton family.

We will create cards or small prints on my Adana Letterpress, you may also wish to combine with drypoint as seen in photos, or a monoprint. Choose your own heroine, or you will get plenty of inspiration on the day!
