This March, three of our Studios 5 artists will be leading a new textile workshop called Make A Friend. Agnieszka, Ania and Anna have created a three day workshop inspired by Louise Bourgeois, Alex Rigg and Nick Cave in which participants will make a life size doll. The workshop will teach different textile techniques including hand & machine sewing, embroidery, appliqué and dyeing & painting fabrics to create something unique. Every participant will leave with their own life size doll at the end of the three sessions, you can see their dolls in the photo above.
The workshop will run on Saturday 12th, Sunday 13th & Saturday 19th March from 11am - 2.30pm. The cost is £60, all materials, equipment and tea/coffee/cake will be provided. Don't worry if you haven't worked with textiles before, no experience is needed to take part. Over 16's only.
Booking closes on Friday 19th February, there are only 12 places so book your place now to avoid missing out!!
Delta Studios opened their Young Artists Exhibition entitled ‘Fractured’ on Friday 12th June. It was a great night with around 80 young people aged between 5 and 18 years exhibiting work and hundreds of visitors attending to see their wonderful creations. The younger classes produced work on a variety of subjects while the older students created one piece each on the subject of unconventional gas and oil extraction. As usual the young people outdid themselves putting on a fabulous, colourful, creative and though provoking exhibition.
Here are some of the photos from the opening night...

The opening night at Emerge was fantastic! Thank you to everyone who came along to see the exhibition, I think you will agree that it was one of the most creative and vibrant exhibitions we've ever had! The students all ages 12-18 years worked so hard to get all their work ready and they did a great job! This is the first time the portfolio classes have had an exhibition of their own and after having such a successful exhibition it won't be their last!! Look out for news about our next adult exhibition which will be coming in the new year!
Our portfolio classes have been growing in size over the past few years, so much so, that we had to start a new class this year. So for the first time ever, the portfolio classes will have their own exhibition!!! We are so excited about this one!!! There will be over 45 students showcasing class work, personal work and a project about their response to the many conflicts that are going on in the world today. Our students create work with all sorts of materials and have created two very special installations for this exhibition...it's going to be great!!
The exhibition will open on Friday 24th October at 7pm! We hope that you will join us at the opening or you can come along for a visit during the day, the exhibition is open Monday - Saturday 11am - 3pm.
Hope to see you soon!
