Free skillshare workshops for all - woo!

We're happy to invite you to join us for a summer of skillshare, creativity and fun. Sharing is the way forward and together we will be learning some new skills, sharing some old ones and finding ways to work as a community.

Our workshops will be running in different locations in and around Rotherham during summer 2010 so please get in touch or just come along. If you are unemployed and over 18 we can help you with travel costs and each session includes a healthy veggie meal and refreshments all for free. Children are welcome at the workshops which are held in our mongolian yurt an autonomous art space which means we all look after ourselves, eachother and our earth with love and respect. We hope there's something for everyone but if there is anything else you would like to share or learn let us know and we'll see what comes.
