Immersive creative workshops and experiences that bring Irish words, culture, and heritage to life


As an artist and printmaker, Angelina Foster is inspired by words, stories, and symbols from Ireland’s past. Her hands-on, creative workshops, which feature ancient skills including screen-printing, natural dye botanical printing, and gravestone rubbing experiences, give you the chance to explore your own creativity and be inspired by traditional stories and techniques. Each of the artistic experiences led by Angelina is offered at characterful locations throughout Ireland’s Ancient East.

Angelina’s studio is based in the restored Quaker Tanyard in the beautiful heritage village of Ballitore, Co Kildare.
