Teach Scoile’s opening event kicks things off with an evening of conversation, collage and cold beer. 

Karen O’Donoghue will be showcasing the fresh harvest of ancient and heritage grain from around the country this October, getting noses stuck into freshly milled grain, explaining why these ancient seeds are what our bowels depend upon. Blended through sourdough starters, guests will unearth new flavours from soils around the island alongside lashings of freshly harvested olive oil from Greece and sea salt from Achill.

She’ll also be joined by Cillian from Mescan Brewery for a conversation about the art of beer and the wonderful things taking place in their brewery. 

Taking inspiration from this discussion, collage artist Sorcha O’Higgins will then lead a workshop with guests to create their own collage.  ​​With a background in architecture and urban art, Sorcha works almost exclusively with existing analogue material to create both abstract and figurative work. Her style ranges from geometric and architectural to fluid and harmonious, and recent work has focused on using the medium of collage to examine gendered imagery. 

We’ll also have a Mescan beer and nibbles for everyone to enjoy while they’ll unleash their inner Matisse.
