Creative Kirklees newsletter

The latest Creative Kirklees newsletter has a callout for artists for Halloween and more:


 

Creative Kirklees Newsletter 15 August 2017


We’ve highlighted a number of workshops and courses for you this week – some are one-off workshops, others are weekly courses, but either way there’s a great range to choose from. 

Perhaps you’ve always fancied making clay pendants, trying pyrography, or creating your own book cover – you can find these workshops at Create Space in Huddersfield.  If you enjoy photography take a look at David Speight Photography’s one day courses taking place across Yorkshire.  Or if you’ve never drawn or painted before or would like to improve your art technique go along to the weekly Art Club at Crafty Praxis starting on 16 August. 
You can find more workshops, courses and events on our What’s On page. Remember, items in the newsletter are picked out from the Creative Kirklees website and these are added by artists or creative organisations with a profile.  If you find an event is missing information or the information isn’t clear please let them know by contacting the profile owner.  If you have a profile and add events make sure you include as much detail as possible so your audience can find all the information they need.
