Informal Women’s Art Group

IWAG A self-led group that aims to encourage and develop creative skills of women from diverse backgrounds and to meet in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere to create art with support and friendship. All levels of creative skills are welcome. If getting involved in art and creativity is something you have always wanted to do then this easy going informal friendly group is a gentle way of getting involved.

Meeting monthly. Small fee to cover room rental. Material for first meeting provided. First workshop: Monday 23rd September at Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Manorhamilton. 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. Contact Liz for further information on lizejbyrne@eircom.net

This is the inaugural meeting of the Art Group. It is a self-led, self-funded initiative set up by women who were part of the North Leitrim’s Multi-Cultural Women’s Art Group that ran sessions over the winter/spring 2012-1013 and held an exhibition of work created during these sessions in August at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Manorhamilton. The group members made friends and had fun and didn’t want the sessions to end, but also wanted to open them up to more budding artists and so decided to continue on with the art sessions and the chance to meet up for a chat and be creative. The initial group was facilitated by a local artist Liz Byrne, with grant funding supported by the European Union’s PEACE III Programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body and delivered by the County Leitrim PEACE III Partnership.
