For the next 6 Mondays we are delivering workshops at Gorton library. Great to see new faces get involved with the projects. We are making large postage stamp designs that tell a story of where they are from. Great work yet again and a little more freedom with the designs too. We love watching people’s approach painting their designs in different ways. You really see the individuality come out.

Our last session at Thomas Regan Court but the project rolls on. Thank you for everyone that was involved. We love coming here and working with the residents. Always smiles, lots of laughs and lots of cake………… Oh and art yes, Lots of art being made. Smashed it again.

Back again at Thomas Regan for the 2nd session of our “So We Finally Meet” project. The working coming together and a few have now started putting the lettering on to transform them into street signs (using the surname of the person and adding road, avenue or close etc). They are looking really great and will look amazing altogether when they are finished. By the end of this project we are going to have more street signs than Manchester City Council haha.

“So Ere We Are” Project at Levenshulme inspire. Really busy but an absolute pleasure as always. The prints are related to buildings that hold significant importance to people. Great work yet again.

The installation of the Bradford Pit Miners prints at the National Coal Mining Museum in Wakefield. What a great place to display and showcase Bradford Pit. and also a great feather in the cap of Gorton Visual Arts. The work looks fantastic as always, if you are in Wakefield or the surrounding area, pop in and have a look around it is a fantastic museum.

Back at Levenshulme Inspire this Monday and we was working on our pint workshop titled “So Ere We Are”. This project is based on peoples memories of local buildings and places that are and were integral to their lives. Great to be back here in this welcoming community centre with so many great people who use the facilities here and join in the workshops. As expected the work looks great and next week when we print the other half it will be even better. Always makes us smile coming here.

Well we kicked off our “so we finally meet” project at Abbey Court Tower Block yesterday., always great to once again talk, laugh and engage the residents. First conversation was about this black plastic cat that keeps being throwed away and somehow returns ….5 times !!!, this has happened!!!
Throughout this project we will once again “be on the road “outreaching to many different organisations, tower blocks and sheltered housing schemes.
