Hidden Stories in the Landscape: Illustration Workshop

  • Workshop

Join Kim Sharkey, multimedia artist and award-winning illustrator, for an exciting adventure in illustration.  

Kim will show you how to design your own artwork inspired by your ‘sense of place’. You will use a new layering technique with drawing paper and tracing paper to make your very own illustrations based on hidden stories in the Laois landscape. 

During the workshop, Kim will share her love of discovering the treasure of hidden stories in the landscape and environment around us. She’ll discuss how her work is often inspired by landmarks in her own environment, especially those used in making illustrations for the award-winning book ‘Mór agus Muilc’.

This interactive Zoom workshop aims to leave you full of inspiration with new ways of thinking about and seeing your environment.
