Homelessness charity Emmaus Mossley is launching a series workshops.
The workshops, at the charity’s Longlands Mill base, will give customers and supporters a chance to learn and develop new skills in subjects ranging from sketching and photography to pottery and upcycling.
The first introductory workshop, Sketching Stories, took place in February.
It was delivered by local artist, Liz Ackerley, an urban sketcher with a particular interest in Reportage Illustration.
Liz said: “I’m really looking forward to using the unique backdrop of Emmaus for this Sketching Stories workshop.
“Participants will learn a variety of techniques and hopefully be inspired to continue sketching the world around them.”
The following workshop, ‘Capturing Fab Photos’ will take place on Saturday, February 24, aimed at anyone looking to improve their photography skills.
More Emmaus Workshops are planned for March, but places are limited and tickets need to be booked in advance.
Hazel Hodkinson, Retail Manager at Emmaus Mossley, said: “We’ve been wanting to organise some Emmaus Workshops for our Saturday supporters for some time.
“Hopefully they will provide an opportunity for people to learn something new or develop skills that come in useful.”
