“Creativity takes courage” – Henri Matisse
We are a new society inviting members to join us at our monthly meetings. Every second Wednesday in the month we meet at 7.30pm in The Next Episode in Ruddington, to learn new skills and encourage local artists and crafters within the village and the surrounding area.
A series of educational sessions, practical demonstrations and discussions are planned and anyone with an interest in art and creativity is welcome. The Next Episode is a new café bar which serves food and drinks and provides a sophisticated space to socialise and share mutual creative interests.
There are also opportunities for members to exhibit art and craft works. We want to develop all of our members’ skills, their appreciation of art and to promote the confidence to be creative. Our future plans include inviting established artists to give lectures and informative group sessions on a range of artistic topics.
In addition, we’re planning tours and visits to galleries, museums, exhibitions and places of interest for members of the Society and the wider community. And we intend to arrange related activities of an educational nature for schools, places of worship and other community groups.
Art trails and open studios in and around the area are on the agenda for the summer, in association with existing village events.
The annual subscription to the society is currently £40 per year. Non-members are welcome, but with a small charge for each event, usually £5 per session. All are welcome and we also gladly receive any suggestions for activities and events.
Please contact any of the following committee members for more information:
