Blackburn College

Blackburn College’s Art&Design Saturday Club runs exciting and engaging creative workshops in a range of art and design processes including drawing, ceramics, printmaking, spot welding, design, typography, photography, fashion and textiles.

Experience working in state of the art facilities and get expert advice from our tutors at the weekly club. This is a great opportunity to build up an art and design portfolio, with no pressure of a formal assessment.

Club members will also take part in three National Events; the London Visit, in which club members take part in a pop-up self-portrait exhibition and visit the capital’s museums and galleries; a Masterclass with a leading creative industry professional; and the Summer Show where all club members exhibit their work in an exhibition in Somerset House, London – all for FREE

October 2019 – June 2020

The London Visit has a profound impact on Club members, simply in terms of the opportunity to leave Blackburn and visit the capital. This cannot be underestimated as a positive factor in their motivation and aspirations.

The highpoint of the year was seeing Club members gain the confidence to work independently, producing screenprints and preparing work for the first ever National Festival of Making.

The Summer Show raises the profile of the creative industries, and has allowed us to forge exciting and unexpected partnerships.
