Self Arranged Residencies
If you are an experienced printmaker and would like to spend some creative time in Ireland we would be happy to welcome you to Seacourt on a self-arranged residency. You will be able to access the widest range of print techniques in Ireland all under one roof. There is no application process – we are keen to meet new printmakers and see how they approach their practice. It’s more a friendly exchange of our resources for your creative approach to making and doing. You would get free access to our facility in exchange for an artist talk/demo. This would be 24/7 access with ink included. Quality paper and plates can be purchased in the workshop if you need materials. You would get an induction on your arrival.
If you are seeking funding to support your visit we can provide you with a letter confirming your residency dates. We cannot provide any financial support for travel or accommodation. Bed & Breakfast accommodation here is usually around £30.00 a night. There are self-catering options too which can be cheaper usually about £200 a week. We can provide a few contacts in Bangor which may be very suitable for you. If you are thinking of staying for a sustained period of time rooms can be found for about £90.00 a week. We suggest it is best to stay in the centre of Bangor so do contact us for help in your search for accommodation. Here are some links that may be of interest.
