The Arts development team works with communities in developing traditional arts and crafts.
Traditional arts and crafts were originally passed on through generations living and working in a community. Arts Development aim to introduce and develop traditional arts and crafts within the community working with the elderly, adults and children alike.
We run an on-going programme of classes, courses, summer schools, workshops and seminars for children, young people and adults. This programme includes jewellery making, traditional crafts, such as felt making and silk painting, and children's arts and crafts as well as offering local artists the opportunity to participate in craft fairs.
Our wide ranging programme is designed to accommodate all needs, ages and abilities and runs over four academic terms enrolling in August, October, January and April each year (three terms at East Kilbride Arts Centre). Details are available in the arts development programme and in the ACE children's activities programmes.
