Exhibition, Sales and Workshops

Made by Students and Staff of ArtyBirdCarnforth School for Art and Textiles

"And here is Art
Inviting the soul by reaching her hand out
Towards a soothing and serene wood,
Towards a garden where imagination blazes across the sky,
Inviting it to the noble stage of wisdom
And leading it toward the far-off horizon
Of universal civilisation."

'In Honour of Art' - Daisaku Ikeda (World Poet Laureate)

Last November we hosted our first event under the banner of "Box of Beautiful Things". It was our opportunity to share with you the work our students produce. Much of this was for sale.

We presented a diverse range of textile products ranging from the fine art hanging through to the most useful of items, all hand made to a high level of craftsmanship and each piece individual, reflecting the individuality of our students and the makers they have become.

The staff of ArtyBirdCarnforth were on hand to host you and discuss the courses we have on offer. These can be for pleasure or to achieve a City & Guilds qualification.

If you are in business then please come to our next event and see what we have to offer. You may find your next best seller!
