Platform Associate Artist Geraldine Heaney will be sharing some of the work she has Made in Easterhouse
Our new season Taking Part programme returns this April, with all classes and workshops taking place in our building. We've added an extra Art Factory session each week and combined our Lab Station and Creation Station drama classes into one brilliant new session - Monday Night Drama.
All activities can be joined at any point in the block and taster sessions are also available if you wish to try a class first. Sessions are led by professional artists and are friendly, welcoming and informal. No previous experience is required for any of our classes or workshops.
These classes are offered on a Pay-What-You-Like basis, where you decide what to pay. You can pay for a full block up front or pay weekly - both online or at the class itself in cash or by card. Click ‘book tickets’ on the individual class listing for more information. Please note that all classes will be available for booking from Tuesday 12th April.
