Intro Text 

We had planned to bring you an exhibition celebrating 60 years of Graphic Studio Dublin in the Municipal Gallery, dlr LexIcon, unfortunately for now that's not possible. We had lots of workshops, talks and demonstrations organised for all ages.

However, all is not lost as artist Clare Henderson has created two very special printmaking workshops for children.

Stamp Making Workshop

 

Roller Print Workshop

 

Create your own rollers with materials you can find in most kitchens, to print, personalise and decorate your own art, gift bags and wrapping paper.

Graphic Studio Dublin member, Clare Henderson, will take you through the process of making and printing with homemade rollers to create your very own textured and patterend homemade prints. You can choose to make just one of the rollers she demonstrates, or all three, and you can see how she covers large areas quickly and easily so you can choose to make your own regular sized piece of art, or large scale wrapping paper, depending on the size of the paper you have to hand.

Materials for Rollers:
Scissors
Jar/Tin can/Cardboard tube
String/Elastic bands/Foam cloth, glue stick and rolling pin
 
Materials for Printing:
Water
Tray
J Cloth
Greaseproof paper 
Sponge cut into 4 to 6 pieces (one piece for each colour)
