Visit the Studio
On 13th July, I will be throwing open the doors to my studio along with all the other creatives at AWOL... If you would like to see where the magic happens, have a nosey or a chat with me then do come along... There’ll be an extensive exhibition of new and retrospective work, plus wine and chocolates!
'For the 14th year in a row AWOL Studios welcomes all curious members of the public into Hope Mill, our beloved Grade II listed landmark in Ancoats. This is the one hallowed eve when we invite everyone to explore our four historical labyrinthine floors, home to 83 different creative collectives all busily keeping themselves out of mischief. From painters, videographers, graphic designers, perfume makers, sculptors, textile workers and tattooists (as well as a few renegades who refuse to be classified!) AWOL is proudly home to one of Manchester’s most diverse and enduring artistic communities. Drinks and light refreshments will be on offer, as well as a chance to mingle with residents and chat about their latest projects. It’s a great opportunity to peek behind-the-scenes and see how abstract ideas manifest into reality, to get inspired and discover new workshop or learning opportunities, meet like-minded people or simply have a nosy!
When: Saturday 13th July 2019 6pm-10pm
Where: Hope Mill, Pollard Street, Ancoats, Manchester, M4 7JA.
This year AWOL is also teaming up with Manifest Arts Festival, which runs 12th to 21st July alongside the Manchester International Festival and has a whole programme of exciting events keeping your finger on the pulse of the North West's vibrant arts scene. For those not in the know, Manifest Arts Festival is an artist-curated biennial festival giving visitors an insight into the wide-ranging contemporary art being produced in the North West region. Throughout these two weeks they will create various 'art trails' and community led creative initiatives that are accessible and inclusive to all.'
