by admin on 28/05/2019

Junior STAG, Primary and Senior Groups have been very busy in the past few weeks completing their Printing Course with Printer, Aoife Barrett, Galway as well as doing  their appliqué and  pottery  courses with STAG Tutors Bobby and Lesley at the same time. Great results were achieved by all  in each of the  courses. We would like to acknowledge the financial support, through the Arts Grant  from Tipperary Co. Council’s  Arts Office, that facilitated Junior STAG’s 60 members from 9 years to Leaving Certs.  to complete  the Printing Course with Aoife Barrett. Very much appreciated indeed!

The students have just 4 more weeks to their summer holidays  so we would ask the senior group( who are now on holidays)  to attend right up to and including the 22ndJune as their Batik must be completed and they will be needed to help  paint the infant school playground  in Ss. Peter and Paul’s Primary School also during the next few weeks.

STAG  Adults were delighted to present Sandra from Sanie’s Trust and Agnes from Clonmel Daffodil Day Fund( Cancer Night nurses)  a cheque each for €1,100, being the proceeds from the very successful Charity Concert that STAG ran with several great choirs on Saturday May 4th in Old St. Mary’s Church, Clonmel.  The Adult Art Group are now  busy completing artworks for their 51st Annual Art Exhibition in Clonmel Library which will be officially launched on Tuesday 2nd July.  Members are asked to attend on either Tuesday nights or Wednesday mornings for all the info re the Exhibition and  the proposed en plein air outing to Co. Laois.
