Meet an artist

Whenever you visit Newcastle Art Space chances are you'll run into one of the exhibiting artistsalso doing the gallery sitting. Take the time to have a real conversation with the artist about their work and gain a deeper understanding into the exhibition. Whether you are an artist yourself or it's your first time visiting an Independent Galleries Newcastle, having a chat to the person looking after that gallery space will definitely add to your experience.


Change your life
Now, this is what art is supposed to do, isn't it? The good kind, that is. Learning directly from a master is certainly special and could change your life, if you let it. At Timeless Textiles during June, Textile Artist Sachiko Kotaka will be running a 2-day felting workshop inspired by the traditional Japanese “Boro” process. Could this be your life changer?
