This September the Brewery is opening its doors to give our local community the opportunity to come along and see what we do in the Creative Learning Department. Come and meet the team as well as some of our inspiring tutors and try, for free, some of the exciting courses and classes people of all ages can get involved with this autumn.
The first Brewery Creative Community Open Day takes place on Saturday 1st September where there will be many different free activities to try, from throwing a pot on a wheel to drawing workshops and dance sessions. There’ll even be a chance to get behind the scenes on special backstage tours and watch a painting demonstration by well-known local artist and tutor Thuline de Cock.
From Early Years Sticky Fingers art to Mature Movers dance we hope we have something for everyone this autumn. You can also find out some of the other groups and activities we run including Act Your Age (our senior theatre company in partnership with Age UK), Creative Difference and Interact (with Fairoak and Oakleigh Housing) and our work across schools in South Cumbria with SLDC and the Applied Theatre in Cumbria project.
Kate Lund, Adult Learning Manager says, “We’re really excited to be able to open our doors in a way we haven’t done before. This is a great opportunity for the local community to come to the Brewery and try something new, for free. There are many people who visit the Brewery regularly to enjoy a drink or trip to the cinema, who might not know that they can also learn to play the ukulele, join our choir or learn a new language here. Anyone, whatever age or ability can take part in the open day and we look forward to welcoming them here. “
