The Garden Gallery Project

Schools & Colleges

Secondary school pupils were invited to take part in workshops with master stone mason Philip Quinn. Drawing inspiration from Lismore Castle Arts’ current exhibition by Rashid Johnson, participants created a series of sculptures inspired by the exhibition.

The Garden Gallery project saw 2 schools - Blackwater Community School, Lismore, and Meánscoil San Nioclás, An Rinn - participate in an intensive project, comprising of school visits, gallery research session and hands on workshops.

These artworks were presented in Lismore Castle Gardens through the open season alongside the works of renowned artists Rashid Johnson, Antony Gormley and Richard Wright. Student’s works were gifted back to the schools and installed in a location of their choosing.

This project was kindly supported by Waterford City and County Council.
