Malpas Street Studios

The studios in MART’s Malpas Street Gallery & Studios are based in a historic block on the edge of the Liberties. This cosy former office space is now home to a range of artists and creatives working across a number of disciplines.

About the studios

The Building

Situated on the upper floor of an office block, this building has windows on two sides for lots of light and great views of the Liberties skyline. A large shared kitchen and social space gives studio members the opportunity to get to know their neighbours.

Location

Located close to NCAD, as well as a range of cafes (The Fumbally, Two Pups, Cathedral Cafe), bars (John Fallon’s, The Headline, Whelan’s, Against the Grain), and restaurants (Sova Vegan Butcher, Boojum, Konkan).

Transport

The Malpas Street studio is situated on bus routes 49, 54a, or five minutes walk to 27, 56a, 77a, 150 and 151. Fifteen minutes walk from St Stephen’s Green Luas Stop.

Vintage Boutique

Babydoll Vintage

Vintage Women’s wear boutique, selling a range of unique affordable pieces as well as one off designer pieces. Babydoll’s calling has always been to keep the love affair and mystery of vintage alive. We bring all our dolls beautiful gems weekly. Our pieces tell a story and are far from the every day run of the mill vintage you will find.

A visual artist based in Dublin. Will draw on anything but prefers to do it on paper and pottery.

Stage Design

Molly O’Cathain

I am a Set and Costume designer based in Dublin (with Swedish roots) and a co-founder of MALAPROP. I work across theatre, dance, opera and the occasional film and music video. I like to collaborate on vibrant, expressionistic work, using colour, form and object as visual metaphor and dramaturgy, rather than (or as well as) as backdrop or decoration. I create detailed worlds which have a thoroughly developed material culture and consistent or decisively inconsistent attitude to the material.

Design

Attention Attire

Attention Attire creates limited edition, handmade outerwear and accessories from upcycled camping gear left behind at Ireland’s music festivals. Each piece is crafted with recycled materials that would otherwise end up in landfill. This isn’t fast fashion, this is forward thinking fashion.

Visual Artist

Ross

Ross is the youngest of six children to Mark and Eileen Kelly. All of his siblings and childhood friends are getting married and taking out mortgages. Ross received ‘excellent’ in his Junior Infants school report, there was steady decline from then on. He’s just trying to regain said former glory.

Visual Artist

Sarah Edmondson
