When the weather is gloomy and the days are long and dark, there’s nothing better you can do than to let those creative juices flow. Join fellow ‘needing a break from reality’ folks at the Art Factory creative drop in workshop at Platform in the East End.

Being creative allows us to temporarily escape from the realities of things like university, office life or even just day-to-day life. All abilities of people aged 16 and up are encouraged to attend this event for a bit of fun and to let loose.

These free events start on the 13th of November and run every Tuesday until the 17th of December so don’t worry if you can’t make it on the first date. Classes run from 1pm to 4pm and you can find Platform in the East End.

There no limit to how many times you go so if you find yourself inspired the first time you can also attend any of the other dates the studio is running Art Factory.

Materials will be provided but you are free to bring along anything of your own. There will be people on hand to give advice and assistance on
