Creative Journeys began in 2012 with a number of workshops in textiles and painting. These were so successful that we decided to create a structure with which to provide art workshops on an on-going basis.
Our immediate aim is to provide professional, community-based arts education in a friendly and supportive environment.
Our larger aim is to facilitate the growth and development of the local arts community. We want to create opportunities for networking among artists, to keep Nelson’s creative spirit alive.
The programme now includes on-going weekly classes, one-day and weekend workshops, occasional master classes and an annual Summer School. All Creative Journey tutors are professional, practising artists, who are keen to share their skills and knowledge with others.
