Arts and craft workshops
Support and funding for nearly 20 years from Arts Council England and North Kesteven District Council has allowed artsNK to nurture and develop the arts, and specifically groups that are keen to develop and apply their skills, project after project, year after year.
One of our ambitions is that projects have a sustainable impact, which is often about providing opportunity for people that have been practically involved to have a route through to further involvement and development. Sometimes this has led to the development of specific craft or village groups, that go on to become independent and apply for grant aid and take on projects in their own right.
Apologies but we need to change the date for next month from Monday 8th September to Monday 15th September, from 10am – 3pm
There will be a soup lunch, but please bring your own drink, dress appropriately and wear strong footwear suitable for working in.For more information contact Alison Walling on 01522 262973
