PREVIEW By Steve Cooke
Tap into your creative side this summer with these free, drop-in workshops for young people at Aviva Studios this summer for a series of creative workshops for young people – as part of Factory International’s summer programme.
These are not your average workshops. Upcycle a t-shirt or get lost in psychedelic drawing inspired by our blockbuster Yayoi Kusama: You, Me and the Balloons exhibition – all while mingling and mixing with fellow young creatives.
You don’t need a ticket – just drop by from 4pm, every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Sunday. The bar is open throughout, so you can enjoy food and drink as the sun goes down.
Workshops have been specially designed by Factory International’s Creative Learning team and are intended for young people aged 14 to 30.
Until 20 AUG
