CALL OUT FOR ARTISTS AND MAKERS FOR FAMILY WORKSHOPS

Over the next year there will be opportunities for artists to run family workshops at HOME on the High Street.  We are interested in hearing from professional artists with different skills from paper-cutting to lantern making to knitting who will enjoy devising and leading workshops for families in Slough.

We are based in the heart of this multi-cultural town, and looking for workshops that bring families together, they could be responsive to the ideas of home or high streets (or re-imagining high streets), or more generic.

We will keep the information of all those we hear from and get in touch if and when we have an available opportunity.  Artists will need to have an enhanced DBS check in place to apply.

If you are interested please e-mail your CV to info@homeslough.org.uk and the types of workshops you would be interested in offering, including your daily rates/fees for the workshops proposed.
