Our Talks & Craft Workshops

Our Talks & Craft Workshops thumbnail

During the summer of 2014 our programme of talks and craft workshops was well received. It was free to attend and complemented our exhibition of The Hidden Art of Barnsley at the Cooper Gallery. Our lecturers impressed the audiences with their in depth knowledge of these fascinating Barnsley artists, their lives, their work and the influence of their Barnsley roots on this. People were delighted to find out about an explorer to rival Livingstone, an art nouveau designer who worked on the Winter Gardens Blackpool and Harrods Food Hall, a miner who painted his underground working life and artists born of the early glass industry at Gawber. The audience went away pleased and surprised at the wealth of past talent form Barnsley. For reaction to our exhibition and our free talks during the summer of 2014, just take a look at our August 2014 Newsletter.

Others took the opportunity to try out their creative skills in an entertaining and enjoyable situation. See our images of their glass and tile painting and pen and ink drawing. Some were so delighted with the morning weaving class that they stayed in the afternoon to continue their weaving.
