Make and Share workshop

Come to meet new people and get creative in an afternoon of making, experimenting and sharing as we recognise International Older Persons Day 2022.

Inspired by our current exhibition‘Hollow Earth: Art, Caves & The Subterranean Imaginary’, Artist Gillian Brent will guide us as we think about the shadows and light of caves and experiment with fabric, images and hand stitching together. We’ll also be joined by Community Champions and Nottingham City Council's Health and Wellbeing Team who will be on hand to share information about local support and wellbeing services.

  • Free. Book by calling Nottingham Contemporary on 0115 9489750 or email
