Workshops

We organise workshops, classes and courses in a range of art forms; including photography, creative writing, textiles, calligraphy and much more.

These sessions take place in local community venues, churches and other centres and aim to provide local residents the opportunity to have fun, meet new people and take part in a new activity on their doorsteps.

Autumn 2018 Programme

We’re very excited to be launching our new Autumn What’s On Guide for September – December 2018! The new term include’s lots of creative workshops, exciting Go and See visits and other projects for you to get involved with.

Click the image above to read the full Autumn What’s On Guide.

To book your place on to any of our workshops, email booking@theculturalspring.org.uk or call 0191 427 8197.

Places on workshops are limited, so book early to guarantee your place. All ages are welcome on our workshops, but under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.

In order to make our activities as accessible as possible, we heavily subsidise the cost to attend. We do still ask for a voluntary donation to help support the costs of the artists, venues, materials and transport. If you’re not able to make the voluntary donation you’re still welcome to join us.

Take a look at the video below by Roar Motion when they recently visited our Calligraphy, Screen Printing and Upcycling Furniture workshops to see what’s in store at our workshops:
