This week Wednesday 5th Manchester United are playing at home. This means the traffic in the area can be a bit heavy. So if you are planning to attend the class, give yourself more time than usual. And don’t worry if you are late, it happens every time United are at home! And if you are a United fan, good luck against Arsenal!
The Edge will be closing over the Christmas holidays
So the Last class of the year will be on 19th December
Starting again on Wednesday 9th Jan
In mean time if you are looking for an unusual Christmas present, you could buy someone a drawing class! They get this card which they can redeem anytime next year.
Costs the same as a class (so is also inflation proof!)
The North West is blessed with a few independent Art Studios. They are mostly run by dedicated teams that give up their time effort, and often finance (Where do you think the money to paint walls and the rest comes from?), for the ‘greater good’. They do it because they are artists, and they know how vital the arts are. Rogue Studios an institution for more than twenty years, was forced to move due to redevelopment. They have found a new home for eighty or so artists in Openshaw, and are opening their doors to the public for the first time this Friday. There are open studios as well as a brilliant exhibition ‘Manifesto’ in their new gallery space, Manifest Arts (of which I am one), co-curated.
It will be a great evening, and weekend, and a real celebration.
The ancient Greeks wrote of the Phoenix, portraying events like these.
While The Edge is closed we are thinking of running an all day session, possibly on Grosvenor St one day over a weekend. It may present the opportunity for people to paint or use other materials. Will mention it at Wednesday class, and measure the interest…
