Expanding again - here's studio 3
Although Covid restrictions have meant that all our classes, face to face workshops and taster sessions have had to be suspended it doesn't mean that we've been idle!!! This is our new studio - number 3 in the growing empire down at Makerspace on Seaside Road! This studio is especially for our artist in residence programme and the training scheme that we will be putting in place as soon as restrictions are lifted.
We've had support from South East Creatives to equip the space which includes a wonderful wheel hand-built by Patrick Lester, more news on the incredible collection of tools, materials and pottery we've acquired from Patrick in another post.

We are delighted that Christine Binnie will be joining us in the New Year to lead a workshop that explores how she uses text to provoke ideas and tell stories in her work.

Arts Council Cultural Recovery Fund
We are absolutely thrilled to hear that we have received funding thanks to the government's #CulturalRecoveryFund - we can continue to be #HereForCulture for our community of makers.
We are so excited that we can now increase the opportunities for cultural engagement in Eastbourne.
Ann comes along to our workshop with @eastbournemencap
every Friday. She has grown in confidence so much and is 100% willing to give all types of making and materials a go. Ann is a brilliantly inventive maker, a wonderful painter and a complete joy and inspiration to us all.
