Professional Development

As part of our commitment to providing services and resources to visual artists throughout Ireland, National Sculpture Factory programmes an annual series of professional development training workshops.  This programme supports visual artists in their practice by providing training on a wide range of topics directly relevant to their work.


These workshops aim to address the business needs of artists working in a professional environment. They are also intended to introduce artists to new areas of work, providing artistic and financial opportunities and complementing their studio practice.

Past workshops include:
  • Legal & Contractual issues for Artists
  • Crowd-Funding with Business to Arts & Fund It
  • Documenting Your Work
  • Copyright for Artists
