Making a Mess! Creative workshops for 14-19 year olds.

Are you 14-19 and consider yourself creative?

Whether you like drawing, painting, writing or anything else, strange things? Collective are running some workshops this summer and you are welcome.

Making a Mess is all about exploring what interests you and producing that in whichever arty way feels right. The sessions will be looking at different themes, such protest and the idea of home, and we'll have a go at a few mediums you might not have tried before, like creative journaling and making zines.

There will be two sets of workshops this July and August, one in Sunderland and one in Washington. Each group will consist of four dates which are listed below.
