The LSC Workshop Programme advances skills and knowledge across all the main traditional and contemporary art making disciplines. By providing opportunities for experimentation across key material processes the programme demystifies 'technique' in supporting artists developing new work whilst attracting new communities to the Centre. An integrated structure ensures that workshops are available from a basic level upwards and the movement between courses is both possible and encouraged.

Workshops cater for basic and up to intermediary levels of experience and may attract members of the public as well as artists wishing to take part.

Masterclasses bring professional artists together to examine and explore advanced technique around a specific medium or process through collaboration, sharing of knowledge and by working across and combining different materials and processes

Symposia Symposia often take place in the Gallery in combination with technical areas. They present opportunities for engagement in the creative development of new work for display and/or public exchange or for discussing its application in different social contexts.

Professional Development Training facilitates practical ways artists can advance their careers. These often involve third party organisations bringing in expertise such as the VAI, Creative Frame and/or involve creative-industries initiatives in collaboration with Local Development Companies and County Councils for example: Harnessing Creativity and Leitrim Livecraft. Benefits accrued include Professional Development; Provision of employment; Sharing of skills and knowledge; Business mentoring and Marketing support.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the risk of Covid-19 all LSC workshops are under review and postponed until further notice.
