A Day for Curio•sea•ty – parts 2 & 3

These workshops have been postponed. Click here for more info.

Over the last few months the Curio•sea•ty team have found, played and homed various traditional technics to enable them to produce pieces of work that will be exhibited as part of the Curio•sea•ty exhibition that opens in March. Alongside the show we are running two full-day workshops where we will share some of these skills. Each workshop will include 2 or more different techniques, no previous experience is needed and all materials are provided.

The workshops are partly subsidised with a grant from Leeds Inspired (part of Leeds City Council) so we are able to offer them at only £10 per person!

Come and join us for one or both days. These are the details for each session and how to book.
