Arts Workshops

At North Bristol Community Project, we deliver Arts workshops for schools, youth projects, seasonal events, celebrations and private parties. Whatever theme you choose for your workshop, you will have the choice between many original and fun craft activities, depending on your audience and creative objectives.

We are happy to travel within the South West, to a venue of your choice. Just tell us about the event you want to organise and host, and we will offer you a variety of arts workshops to choose from, depending on your theme, facilities and targeted audience.

Most of our Arts facilitators possess fine arts degrees or have achieved a teaching qualification, and they are experienced in working in schools and adult education. They are extremely enthusiastic about art and all things creative and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from their practice. Our workshop facilitators give clear step by step introductions into the mediums and techniques which help participants produce a piece of unique artwork. All our arts facilitators are self-motivated with good communication skills, applying warmth and vision to help people explore their creativity in a supportive environment.

“NBCP artists make creating art a fun and relaxing process which is open to all!”...
