Studios

In addition to the Printmaking Studio, The Ballinglen Center has 4 private, purpose-built studios (13ft x 14ft minimum) with high ceilings and white walls into which you can nail, screw, or push pin. The studios are individually heated and well lit by wall-to-wall northern skylights as well as artificial light. Each studio is equipped with a (hot and cold) sink, work tables, and chairs. On the same level for use of the artists is a kitchenette, lavatory, and a glass porch with a panoramic view of the sea, village, and countryside.

Accommodations

Each Fellowship artist is housed, at the Foundation's expense, in a self-catering cottage in or near Ballycastle. Each artist is encouraged to bring family and/or friend(s) whose accommodation in the cottage will also be provided by the Foundation. (Note that Ballycastle's excellent primary school welcomes the temporary enrollment of the children of visiting artists.) Each cottage has its own clothes washing machine and in all cases all bedding, linens, towels, utensils are supplied.
