More about the meet ups…

Join Cork Artist Ashleigh Ellis for our exciting new Teen Meet Ups.  We will do creative workshops and on site visits to exhibitions and places that peak our interest throughout the year.  We will grow our own programme of creative activities together, emerging from our shared interests and curiosities.  Collage, expressive painting, textiles and print-making are just some of the media we could experiment with, taking lots of time to chat, relax and have fun! Come, make friends, meet new people, see new things, and step into a world of possibilities!

This is a year long programme and the meet ups will happen on the last Saturday of every month*

*Except April due to the bank holiday.  The April meet up will happen a week earlier.

There will be morning and afternoon sessions available.

The programme will culminate in a big celebration in November.

Saturday 25th February 2023

This will be the first of our meet ups in Cork.  Our first location will be Mayfield Arts Centre, Newbury House, Old Youghal Rd, Mayfield, Cork.
