This fun, interactive workshop with artist Lisa Fingleton will explore eco painting and drawing using natural and locally sourced materials such as homemade willow charcoal and blackcurrant ink. No experience necessary just an openness to fun and being creative.

The workshop will take place outdoors in the beautiful gardens, native woodlands and meadows at The Barna Way just outside Ballybunion as part of the Ballybunion Arts Festival. Please dress for the weather.

Lisa brings over 20 years of professional arts experience to this workshop and has most recently worked on large scale projects with the Irish Museum of Modern Art, The Crawford Art Gallery and Creative Ireland.

Lisa was the recipient of the Creative Work Development Bursary from Kerry County Council Arts Office 2023 and is offering this workshop for free as part of her work but booking is essential. The bursary is focusing on ways of creating a sustainable arts practice in the context of the biodiversity and climate crises.

Lisa Fingleton is an artist, filmmaker, writer and grower who has spent over twenty years cultivating deep-rooted connections between art, food and farming. Her projects incorporate socially engaged, collaborative and performative process; participatory moving image; large scale drawing installations; as well as creative writing.
