Professional Development Workshops for Visual and Applied Artists
Interested in developing your practice into new directions and refreshing your skills and knowledge?
This series of workshops focuses on different ways of achieving your personal goals: whether through self-initiated projects, responding to existing briefs or applying your research and creative interests to specific sites and contexts.
Run by experienced arts professionals Frances Lord and Belinda Holden each workshop focuses on a different aspect of artistic practice, offering case studies, practical solutions, debate and discussion.

A look back at some of the past projects and Events Making Space has been involved in…
The Leigh Park History Project 2009-2011
The Leigh Park History Project was funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and has been the largest project organised by Making Space.
In May 2009, Ami Lowman, Heritage Project Worker was appointed and her enthusiasm and ability to work with others immediately encouraged different groups and individuals across Leigh Park to get involved in a variety of workshops and events. This project has made a difference: people have enjoyed learning about the history of Leigh Park. Communities have worked together and residents have discovered facts, celebrated their stories and interpreted these visually and creatively by working with professional makers and historians.
For more information please feel free to download the following items, watch the HLF film (above) made my Compulsive Productions, or email Ami on firstname.lastname@example.org
Detailed information from the exhibition
We recently ran a project called Hampshire Young Creatives where local young people who are not in full time work or education had a chance to try their hand at various craft techniques including screen printing, fused glass and jewellery. They also did a couple of workshops with Paul Gonella of Strong Island Media making some short animations.
Here is a link to their short films -
We have recently run a couple of animation workshops as part of our May Open Studios and Summer holiday activities. Here are the links to the animations made:
