Black Church Print Studio is one of the leading fine art print studios in Ireland.
Black Church Print Studio is one of the leading fine art print studios in Ireland. It was established in 1982 as a non-profit organisation and is grant-aided by the Arts Council.Today, the Studio provides professional printmaking facilities for an increasing number of members and non-member artists. Artists have access to etching, lithography, screeprint and relief presses, and to multi-media equipment. A computer system allows artists to manipulate and generate images that can be output directly onto archival paper or transferred to screenprint and photo-etching processes for printing in the traditional manner.
As well as providing facilities for members, the Studio is open to artists wishing to use print as an ancillary activity. For example, we have assisted artists in the production of etched metal, which was later incorporated into sculpture. Painters have used the facilities to screenprint onto canvas, board, and plaster walls.
