Gateshead Inspired: Workshops

Gateshead Inspired: Arts, Crafts and Photography Exhibition is more than a static exhibition of our art. Several of us are also holding workshops scheduled throughout the duration of the show. These will be conducted on site at St Mary's Heritage Centre in Gateshead on a variety of dates.

Last, but not least in our series of workshops, is the Hooky and Proggy Workshop: Get Creative with Trish Turnbull running on Sunday, 17 August, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Aimed at adults and children over 8 years, (children under 14 accompanied) this beginners workshop in the tradition of hooky and proggy techniques will get you started to make a small mat, bauble, heart or picture or begin a larger project such as a tea cosy, cushion cover, hanging or handbag to complete at home.

All the materials you need will be provided, but bring your own scissors. This is a brilliant way to conserve favourite items and recycle them into something new, so if you have any old clothes or spare material to cut up then bring them along and see how they can become something new and creative to decorate your life.

Cost: Adults £10 and Children £5 includes all materials
