Hi, if anyone is interested in going to Ireland, the Belfast Print Workshop and Seacourt Print Workshop in Northern Ireland both have great opportunities to either apply for their residency programmes or utilise their facilities as a visiting artist. They are easy enough to find on the net or I am happy to pass on any info.
Cheers, Struan Hamilton.
