Project and plans for 2018

After a busy and successful 2017 we are now looking forward to 2018.

In January we will be continuing with the successful ‘Art Buddies’ in a new Blackpool location – Marton . The first leaflets have now been distributed to people in sheltered housing in Marton. The project is funded by Blackpool Coastal Housing.

With the community in Revoe and the Art Club Hand Made Un’s we will be creating two new poster for the front of the King Edward Cinema. Project commissioned by Blackpools’ Healthy Living and Creative Design Officer.

With the Hand Made Un’s and community members in the Central and Revoe area we will be creating a community mosaic.

We have just received a very generous donation of tiles from Al-Murad Tiles Blackpool branch. Thanks to artist Kass –

for sourcing these end of line tiles for our mosaic.

In other exiting news – Boz is currently in discussion with the Seaside Stitchers

with a view to working with them on a project on behalf of

Blackpools’ longest established artists group: Blott Artist Studio.

The project will involve creating art works to celebrate 100 years of  Womens Right to Vote. The project will culminate in an exhibition of work by local artists and community involved participants.

We are also planning an exhibition in Revoe of ‘Hand Made Un’s art works; plates dishes, cups and saucers, which will also be for sale. Date and venue TBC in 2018.

Going on further in to 2018 we are looking forward as always to working with Shabby2chic and the wonderful Sandra.

The last 2017 Hand Made Un’s will comprise the following –

an Arts and Creativity general knowledge quiz and two art activities to round off the year.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year of creativity in 2018.
