OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPLORE THEIR CREATIVITY, LEARN NEW SKILLS AND BUILD AN INSPIRATIONAL PORTFOLIO
Making Space is are a craft organisation based in Leigh Park, Hampshire, with a strong track record for over a decade of delivering impactful arts and community based projects with people of all ages and backgrounds. Making Space have recently announced a new inspiring project designed to nurture the next generation of designers and Makers. Creative Futures will launch later this year and will run for 2 years.
Funded by The Ragdoll Foundation, Creative Futures will offer those involved a creative experience far above what’s on offer at school or college, there will be opportunities to explore their creativity, learn new skills and build an inspirational portfolio to aid them in their creative future plans. The project is designed for young women aged 14-18 and over the course of a year participants will get to take part in 4 mini creative projects which will take place on Saturdays between January – August 2023 (so not to interfere with school / college) The projects will focus on: Fashion Design & Pattern Cutting, Jewellery Design & Silversmithing, Millinery Design & Construction and Textile Design (Dyeing, Print & Embroidery).
The project will also involve an inspirational trip, a final exhibition as part of 2023 Open Studios, support in building an online professional presecene, careers guidance and a photoshoot to capture all their work.
The whole project is completely free for those signed up due to the generous funding from The Ragdoll Foundation and we will be repeating the project again in 2024 so if you’re too young this time, you can apply to join next year!
