  1. thank you for a thoroughly stimulating and informative day, and for linking the creativity of the original artworks, their design, manufacture and conservation, their social contextualisation and their digital dissemination and exploration – masterly!

    • Dear Michelle,

      I am delighted you enjoyed the day, and that you appreciated how we tried to link all those different aspects. I hope you will take time to explore our collections at http://digitalcollections.tcd.ie/. If you type ‘Clarke Studios’ in the search box, you will find all the material uploaded so far from our project.

      Kind regards,

      Marta
