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. We aim to introduce and develop traditional arts and crafts, working with all age groups in the community.
We run an on-going programme of classes, courses, summer schools, workshops and seminars for children, young people and adults. This includes jewellery making, traditional crafts, such as felt making and silk painting, and children's arts and crafts. We also offer local artists the opportunity to participate in craft fairs.
Our wide ranging programme is designed to accommodate all needs, ages and abilities. Courses mostly run in four terms, commencing August, October, January and April. However at East Kilbride Arts Centre course terms commence in August, January and April.
