  1. Hello Roisin,
    I run a small art school just north of Boston and I am a regular participant in USKBoston. I also organize free weekly sketching trips near my studio. I am planning to offer a guided sketching trip to Ennis and Galway for my students in June 2022. I would love to include you as a local guide and sketching instructor for at least one of the days of our trip.

    I plan to visit western Ireland to scout sketching locations and area attractions from Sat. Oct 23rd – Fri. Oct 29th this fall. Would you be willing to meet with me during that trip to discuss the possibility of collaborating on the longer trip in June? Please take a look at my website: and I look forward to hearing form you.
    Many thanks, Jess Yurwitz

    PS. Your Sketching Galway book arrived by post yesterday and I love it!

  2. Hi Roisin I’ve just discovered you and have become a big fan. I was wondering would you be planning any workshops in Ireland for 2022?

    All the best

    • Hi Paula, nice to meet you! There will be workshops in ireland and Europe throughout 2022. The next available workshop is Dublin, 24th-27th March 2022. After that there are going to be a few options, in Spain and France, and possibly elsewhere. Best wishes, Róisín

      • Hi Roisin
        Where is an actual list of your workshops as the top of the page shows NO EVENTS. And I know you said you had a Galway one in August. Am I looking on the wrong page or is it in your Facebook or Instagram?

        Also I’m not just looking for Ireland if you have any other locations set at the moment that would be great to see as well.


        • Hi Paula, I don’t have any workshops listed on my website as you have discovered! There is one in France in June but I am not organising it. The others are in Galway in August. Send me an email to the usual email address we use for class for further info.

    • Hi Roisin:
      I’ve been talking to you on Instagram about your August workshop in Galway. I really want to come I’m just trying to justify the three days since I am coming from the U.S. I was wondering do you know any other sketchers in Dublin or maybe the U.K. as I’ll probably go visit family while I there that might be doing workshops around the same time and maybe I can do both. If not maybe I’ll look into some short tours to do after if I decide I would be coming.

      Thanks, see you Saturday in your Zoom workshop.

      Take care

      • Hi Paula, can you send me a mail using the usual email address? I am mobbed by spam on this website and can’t seem to stop it coming in! So I miss a lot of comments in the melee. Thanks!

  3. Hi,

    Computer Neanderthal could you send me a link I can click on
    Many thanls Maeve

    • Hi Maeve, so sorry – didn’t see this one! There are two workshops in Galway this August – second is sold out but there are still two and possibly three places left in the earlier one, 19th-21st August inclusive, with a meet-n-greet on 18th. Let me know if that works for you. Very small group, not my usual number. You should always use the address for all contact!

  4. Hi Amanda, I still have a couple of spots open in my earlier workshop in Galway in August, 19th-21st August, with a meet-and-greet on 18th. Let me know if you like the sound of that. There’s also one in Dublin later on in September. Contact me via email – and we’ll take it from there.
