Talks and Workshops

The artists, craftspeople, writers and filmmakers we work with have fascinating stories and expert skills to share. Many are local to us, with a deep understanding of their subject and a gift for communicating it. In our talks and events, they are able to reveal more about the creative process.

Our workshops are based on our creative programme, or on seasonal events. They’re taught by skilled makers who are enthusiastic about sharing the traditional and contemporary techniques that shape their work.
