Artist in Residence Art for All

Bendrigg Trust Artist in Residence

We currently have our very own local Artist, Emily Jackson, who works with our visiting groups and the local community. During your visit to Bendrigg you will have the opportunity to work with Emily to create great works of art, and have a lot of fun in the process. These sessions give the opportunity for self-expression, relaxation and allow individuals to take home a personal memento of their stay. Sessions are tailored to your group’s needs and interests offering creative workshops for all ages and abilities, which are exciting, engaging and educational.

Workshops include working in clay, felt, textiles, print and much more, as well as the opportunity to work creatively to explore and experience the outdoors in our ‘Art in the Environment’ sessions. Other art sessions for specific groups include:-

Arty Pants

A creative messy morning for children with disabilities and their friends and family. We offer a safe, friendly environment for children to be expressive, experience new things but most importantly have fun. Sessions run on the first Saturday of the month.

Make and Create

A specific art and crafts weekend for adults of all abilities. Enjoy the opportunity to indulge in creativity, learn new skills and produce lovely things to take home all in the friendly and beautiful settings of Bendrigg. Workshops include felting, ceramics, print making and much more. For details of our next session please get in touch.
