Would-be glass-engravers or book-binders can snap up the last few places left on City of York Council’s taster workshops to be held at York Explore, from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 May.

The six creative Inspirations workshops give a flavour of some of the courses on offer and have been organised as part of Adult Learner’s Week which starts on Monday 20 May.

The taster courses in the Inspirations programme are:

  • Let’s start Rag-Rugging
  • Bookbinding – Concertina books with a modern twist
  • Felt Making, contemporary landscapes
  • Glass engraving introduction
  • Stained glass, sun catchers
  • Chinese brush painting.

All last between three and five hours and are suitable for beginners. No special equipment is required.

Councillor Janet Looker, cabinet member for Education, Children and Young People said: “Each year an amazing programme of creative adult education courses are offered in York from dressmaking, mosiacs and stained glass to pottery, quilt and jewellery making. This mini taster programme gives a taste of the courses and each participant will leave with new skills and their own personal piece of work.”

As part of York Adult Learners’ Week, York Explore will also be staging the Inspirations exhibition: a colourful and imaginative collection of art produced by learners from council Adult Education courses, as well as submissions from the Fine Art Departments of York College and WEA (Workers’ Education Association). The exhibition, now in its 9th year, runs during library opening hours and is free.

Prices for the taster workshops vary between £15 and £30. For further information or to book a place please visit Feeling Inspired or call the adult education booking line on 01904 552806 or email adult education.
