Cairde Cló

Cairde Cló

The National Print Museum is delighted to announce Cairde Cló – a new series of virtual visits to “print friends” nationally and internationally. A member of the Museum’s Curatorial Committee will join the guest host for a tour around their print studio or museum, posing questions and channeling questions from the live audience.

Curious to snoop around a printer’s studio and learn more about the collection and work of Ireland’s letterpress printers? Join us on Thursday 11 March at 20.00 for our first visit in the series to Dave Darcy of One Strong Arm, chaired by Mary Plunkett.

OSA is a letterpress print studio based in the heart of Dublin city. Dave creates contemporary typography-led work using traditional methods. The studio’s output usually involves an ever-growing collection of antique wood and metal type, but on occasion it will also include some more modern techniques and processes. While much of OSA’s work comes in the form of self-initiated projects Dave also works closely with designers, artists, agencies, writers, musicians, illustrators, collaborators, experimenters and co-conspirators to create thoughtfully produced work of all kinds.

Free event, booking essential. https://zoom.us/webinar/register/6616147796777/WN_UuB6Q_bKTPCBuHYE6C-SbA
