Wandesford Quay

Workshop – Check Mates: Make Your Own Chess Pieces


Come and join us in Wandesford Quay Courtyard and drop into our family friendly workshop learning how to design and create your own fun, interesting and absurd chess pieces!

This workshop will coincide with a late night opening to our current exhibition, ‘FALTER. CHECK. RESOLVE’ in Studio 12.



An exhibition of work by Anna Barden that showcases a set of remarkable chess pieces created from drawings, ceramic works and an accompanying wall text that serves as both statement and memory. FALTER. CHECK. RESOLVE makes reference to the chess game in Samuel Beckett’s novel Murphy wherein the drawings are absurd in that the chess pieces are all horses.

Events in Wandesford Quay Court are in collaboration with the Lavit Gallery and Cork Printmakers.
