Kirkby Towntastic Making and Drawing

A Phoenix Rising Art Taster workshop with Kirkby Lonsdale CIC and Green Close

The Kirkby Towntastic making and drawing workshop is a Phoenix Rising event. Phoenix Rising is a new visual art and wellbeing programme of workshops that puts your health at the heart of living and working in our community. Make a space for your wellbeing needs, whilst learning, sharing your ideas and connecting with others on a programme of fun, creative activities led by experienced professional artists.

If you’re looking for a livelier way to de-stress, try the Kirkby Towntastic mapmaking workshop which will take place both in and outdoors. This adventure starts at the Lunesdale Hall and moves into Kirkby Lonsdale with artist Danielle Chappell-Aspinwall letting the historic tales and natural awesomeness of the Lune Valley inspire you. In these dynamic workshops you will doodle, make and draw – uniting as a group to decorate the community’s streets with your creations. Try one of the ‘KirkbyTowntastic’ three-hour sessions, or call by for a Family Friendly drop in session.

The Kirkby TownTastic celebratory project will deliver an action packed, fun and welcoming series of workshops to celebrate the wellbeing and resilience of local people by creating a community and family bunting. By sharing stories and creating doodles & drawings participants will be taken through a design process where they can make templates to trace, paint or stitch their ideas to create a joyful collective bunting that can be displayed around the town and beyond.

You can also book onto the one day workshop on Sunday 23rd May here.
