Graphic Studio Dublin, Ireland’s oldest printmaking studio, was founded in 1960 by five visionaries - artists Elizabeth Rivers, Anne Yeats, Pat Hickey, Leslie McWeeney and Liam Miller, Fine Art Editions publisher and founder of Dolmen Press. With an artist-led ethos since its inception, Graphic Studio Dublin has protected the traditional skills of etching, stone lithography, wood and linocutting while continuing to embrace contemporary techniques such as photo-intaglio and screenprinting. Hundreds of artists have passed through the doors of the Studio, from the first premises in Lower Mount Street, through its long and productive sojourn in Green Street East in Dublin’s Docklands to its present home in a spacious four storey former brewery on the North Circular Road.
