Since our jam packed launch in March the first bunch of intensive art courses have been completed including a great Photography Course with George Munday and a Stencil and Graffiti workshop with Sean Corcoran. Coming up in June is a Life Drawing Course with Ger Kennedy and an Encaustic Painting Course with Lora Murphy, that’s painting with Wax! Create a Family Heirloom box in July with American Artist Ruby Clover.
Their new furnace kiln is on its way from the States so you can look forward to some interesting Stained Glass, Mosaic and Ceramics courses when that’s operational. New dates for Photography, Painting on wood with Pamela Silin-Palmer and Painting the Copper Coast with Patrick Palmer will also be announced soon.
In film news, the editing was completed in India last week of the new documentary film called Village by the Sea that was recently created in Bunmahon by New Zealand film makers Michael Heath and Stephen Latty with much local expertise and support. The film looks set to do a world circuit of film festivals but I’m sure it will be coming to a screen nearer to you sometime soon.
Miranda is putting the finishing touches to a huge Sunflower Mosaic with the pupils of Seafield school and is doing a Batik workshop in Knockmahon school. Meanwhile Sean and the pupils of Knockmahon school are working on a Mosaic Map of the area. Sean is also working on the design of a new stage facility at Gaelach Gorm Theatre in Kill.
