These classes will include talks in front of artworks followed by practical art workshops in the Gallery’s education space.
Each class is a stand-alone session and participants can sign up for one or more of the workshops. Suitable for all levels of experience. Advanced booking is required as numbers are limited. €20 per class/ please contact 01 2225553 to book your place.
