Our neighbours in Northfield are looking for three artists to run workshops for local groups who want to be involved in next year’s carnival around possible themes of: masks and headdresses, costumes using recycled materials, papier mache heads and face painting.
The workshops will be on Saturday 11th January 10am – 3pm at Northfield Baptist Church (subject to confirmation) and artists will receive a £25ph fee plus materials. Following the workshop day there may be the opportunity for delivering artists to continue working with community groups to create art work for the carnival itself.
If you are interested or would like more information, please email Laura Yates (email@example.com) with your name, contact details and what kind of arts you work with as well as a paragraph of information about your past experience of delivering community workshops, and a paragraph of what you would do as one of the taster workshops in January.
Deadline for these expressions of interest is Friday the 15th November.
