Art Beyond Vision - limited places available!

Written by Hayley

Spaces are available on our next Art Beyond Vision course and our ceramics workshops we are running in partnership with The Art House. Find out more about how you can take part here!

Our next Art Beyond Vision course is running from 1pm until 3pm from Thursday 9th November – Thursday 30th November (4 weeks) then resuming on Thursday 11th January – Thursday 1st
February 2024 (4 weeks). The courses will be held in the Treacy Hall, adjacent to Wakefield Cathedral. The Treacy Hall is step free and fully accessible.

These courses are open to everyone, irrespective of whether you have previously been creative, or have never done anything like this before. The course is run by local artist Ruth Fones, assisted by Ania and Tom, our two facilitators who both have lived experience of sight loss themselves. You will be given the skills and materials to create work to a high standard and that is original to you. Participants in previous courses are welcome to attend again to further develop their skills.

The courses focus on techniques that anyone can engage with, no matter what level of usable vision (if any) they have (such as tactile drawing, origami, collage, embossing, basic stitch techniques). We do not use techniques such as watercolours as these are not accessible for people with no vision.

We are also running a series of fully accessible ceramics workshops in partnership with our friends at The Art House on Drury Lane, Wakefield, WF1 2TE. These sessions will run on the same dates as above, from 10am until 12 noon.

There are just ten places available per course, so please book now by calling 01924 215555 to avoid disappointment.
