Make your own Repurposed Plant Hanger Pal! with Jacqui Kelleher

We’re all aware that we need to cut down on our waste and limit the rubbish going to landfill. Lots of plastic containers we discard and recycle can be used in different ways if we just have a think!

Bring your empty, clean milk carton and we’ll turn them into new plant hanger pals.

Join one of Garter Lane Arts Centres studio artists Sharon Fleming as she teaches you how to make your very own lino print.

Using various linocut blades, you will carve the lino block to create a positive image. Finally, you will ink the image using a brayer (or roller) with block printing ink and print the image onto a surface.

Adult Workshop
Time: 7.00pm -8.30pm
Venue: Children’s Room

Stagemad Theatre Company presents Award-winning actor Noelle Clarke as Stella, in Noel Kelly’s ‘Jetty Stars’.

Noelle returns to the stage in the challenging and demanding role of Stella, a former prostitute, just released from prison having served a seventeen year sentence for the brutal murder of her lover and pimp, Saleem , a North African seaman.

Venue: Garter Lane Arts Centre Theatre
Price: €15 & complementary drink on the night.

Set on the deserted docks and wharves of the Waterford Quayside, she recreates the thriving city-centre docks and seaport of the 1980’s , now awaiting a much-anticipated North Wharf investment and development.

Creating the role of Stella, the returning ‘Jetty Star’,( a local name for women who plied their trade on the city centre docks), has provided Noelle with a real challenge for her acting and characterisation talents. In a play that has been described as ‘Gritty’, ‘Edgy’ ‘a Waterford we don’t want to talk about’, she gives a ‘Stellar’ performance in the title role.
