On Saturday 8 September 2018, START takes us on a journey from production to curation, in paint to virtual reality. There will be workshops in printmaking, screen printing, etching, origami, clay, doodles, virtual reality painting with tilt brush and more! The space will facilitate an opportunity for all visitors from children to adults to participate in various workshops throughout the day.

Bring your whole family, sign up for a workshop or two, browse the exhibitions and installations and enjoy the atmosphere of a art fuelled space.
