Our series of six free Community Workshops as part of the Bowland Revealed project have now come to a close.

Hosted and ran by professional artists across every district in Bowland, the workshops were a huge success with over 60 people engaging in a range of activities that included textiles, ceramics, drawing, photography, stone carving and environmental art & design.

We’ve had great feedback from many of the participants, some of which we’ve highlighted below:-

“Brilliantly tutored” 

“Great to try out a new experience just for fun and meet a fellow artist.”

“The Environmental Art & Design workshop introduced me to a form of art which I would otherwise not have tried.”

“There was a lot of freedom in the approach to the practical activities, so everyone could follow their own ideas.”

“Lovely to spend time with people who enjoy the same thing. Learnt a lot about the geology and geography of the area as well as some photographic skills.”

“The tuition was excellent, clear step by step instructions, lots of ideas and examples, informal support and advice, space to explore and try things out.”

“The whole day was excellent. I love the venue and the atmosphere was excellent.”

We very much hope to continue working with the Forest of Bowland and local communities to grow this work in the future.
