AboutIn July 2009 Jason and the artist Daphne Warburg Astor took a journey to Tory Island eight miles off the coast of North Donegal. Each day they set off from their tents to walk the island with their sketchbooks. Jason's response to has been a series of ten etchings and he will talk us through these and his experience of the island.
