Cork Craft & Design Events at TEST SITE

Over three sunny summer afternoons we were delighted to host Cork Craft & Design members at TEST SITE. It was exciting to see such a wide range of skills, creativity and generosity throughout the workshops and demonstrations. Pictured here are pieces of fabric that participants produced during a workshop on low water volume ways of hand dyeing bright vivid colours with Mary Palmer!

The New School at TEST SITE

What a pleasure it was to host the talented generation of performers that are "The New School". In collaboration with Stevie Grainger, we were lucky to host live performances from Iris, Mel Maryns, Alicia Olaniran, Brinda Irini & Noreen Angozi. This performance was the first of our 2022 collaboration with The New School at TEST SITE. What does it mean to be an emerging, youth performer in Cork City? Further events, funded through Cork City Council's Placemaking Fund will soon be revealed. Watch this space.


"STAMP represents a collective ambition to effect positive change by empowering artists, makers and creators to claim their rightful place and truly make their mark on Cork’s future." Earlier this year we had the pleasure of hosting a series of STAMP events at TEST SITE. With live workshops, demonstrations and talks the space was alive with creative exchange.
