Based in a grade II listed former textile mill on the outskirts of Halifax town Centre the Artworks building is beautiful, spacious, full of history and bursting with creativity. It is also a ‘naturally cold’ working space for artists and creatives so they recommend wrapping up warm in practical clothing when visiting to take part in activities.
Artworks whose patron is Sir Quentin Blake KBE run artist led courses and workshops that are suitable for all abilities and offer in person teaching where materials are included as well as home learning activities that make use of materials regularly found around the home.
