CING 2nd Birthday Party & New Project Launch

by Emily Pitts on October 13, 2010

in Uncategorized

Monday saw the launch of CING‘s new Project with Future Everything, alongside a marketplace of fabulous creative work from Manchester’s finest creative individuals and businesses.

The event was hugely attended and I had a great time, meeting new people and sharing ideas for projects and works.  Hive, on Lever Street was  a spacious, open and architecturally interesting venue, with tactile fair-faced concrete surrounded by elegant windows that frame the cityscape perfectly.  My tactile artworks seemed quite at home within the Creative Marketplace in the minimal environment of the Studio.  The event brought together creative industry support networks and creative businesses in an maelstrom of artistic, digital and creative display, which facilitated a fantastic feel-good factor and promoted Manchester’s Creative Industries brilliantly.

If you haven’t visited the Hive yet, you should – hidden away and adjacent to the 4th floor studio is a stunning terrace that offers a totally new view of Manchester.  It’s a great hidden place in Manchester!

The official review is here.

Art Classes Denton / Levenshulme

by Emily Pitts on October 8, 2010

in Uncategorized

Thank you to the Tameside Advertiser for their great review in this week’s paper.  From this I’ve had loads studio visits and a few requests for art classes, amongst other things.  I’m keen to know if this is something that you would like.  Suggestions for a venue are:  Dane Bank (Denton) community Centre, My Studio here in Denton or POD in Levenshulme.  The idea is to hold a class with a relaxed atmosphere where we can come together and share thoughts, with more experienced artists and painters supporting beginners or less experienced people.

Materials and Refreshments

I will provide the materials required and there will be a small fee of around £3 per session (2hrs?) to cover costs.  I do like to bake, so I will try to make sure we’ve got something nice to eat after or during the ‘class’ as part of the session charge.

Please email me or drop into the studio if you feel this is something you’d like to take part in.  I’d be really interested in finding out who you are, what your interests are and when you would like a class – evenings or daytimes, or a mixture of both!
