What happens in a workshop?

Workshops are facilitated by queer artists ranging in disciplines from illustration and painting to performance art to puppetry. We also have members hosting a number of workshops each term through our Young Artist Commissions.

Both our online Zoom and in-person spaces are open from 12 pm, and our facilitators will be on hand to offer help with any creative projects you might be working on, or advise on any upcoming opportunities with QYAC such as exhibitions or Young Artist Commissions.

The in-person space has a variety of tools and resources that you are welcome to use including paper, pens, pencils, inks, paints, thread and fabric for embroidery, and we have other resources such as lino printing that can be used on request. All of these are free to use as part of the workshop, but we also try and ensure that whatever exercises we do are accessible no matter what materials you have on hand. Members can also have access to our resource fund to acquire their own materials. If a workshop requires specific materials (eg a photography workshop might require a camera on your phone) members will be notified beforehand via email. 

Workshops begin at 1 pm and usually involve a mix of individual work and sharing ideas with the group. We try to integrate the online and offline groups as much as possible in sessions to maximise the opportunity for connection and feedback. 

After each session, both spaces will stay open until 4 pm for members to finish their work and socialise. If any members have requested 1:1 mentoring it will usually happen at this time. Mentoring requests can be made on the day, but emailing in advance will help us direct you to the member of staff with the most relevant creative experience.
