We’re lucky that our offices are situated in the Tetley. We’re surrounded by a variety of other like-minded businesses in an environment where there are plenty of creative events and exhibitions available for us to attend all year round.
We thought we’d share the events we are most looking forward to in the coming months and particularly the events that are on this half term week. Whether you’re interested in art, creative workshops, talks or finding something for the whole family to enjoy, there’s certain to be something going on that you will enjoy.
There are always exhibitions on at the Tetley, and the latest is Dora Garcia’s: ‘These books they were alive; they spoke to me!’ The installation explores live performance combined with printed material and will run until 23rd April. Alongside this, an exhibition called ‘PAGES: PRESENT FUTURE’, which celebrates twenty years of International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fairs will be running. The archives include an interesting selection of photographs and publications from over the years.
For the little ones, there are creative and sensory workshops and events. On 25th March, there will be a drop in Mother’s Day card making workshop between 11am-3pm which is aimed at children between 5-11 years. This is a great opportunity for the family to come together and unleash their inner artist, using vintage letter press materials and techniques. And, for the younger children, ‘Tiny Tetley’ is held on the fourth Saturday of every month, and introduces sensory activities and creative fun to your little ones.
If you’re interested in talks, ‘Live Library: Performing Selves’ promises to be an interesting day taking place on Saturday 4th March. With speakers from across the country, this day of lectures will explore how we portray ourselves in a changing world, both online and offline. Between 11am-5pm, speakers will present their research findings and what they think the future of our interactions will look like.
