GTG is leaving Great Patrick Street at the end of September, and re-opening in an exciting new location in Spring/Summer 2024. But in the meantime, our programme of free workshops will continue, in collaboration with our friends at the Naughton Gallery at Queen’s!

Workshops will take places at the main Lanyon Building at Queen’s University. Please note: the rooms will change from workshop to workshop, so please make sure to check our website & social media each week!

The workshop programme at QUB will begin in October 2023 and run until April 2024, and will be facilitated by Katharine Paisley, Jen Alexander and our lovely volunteers.

Admission is free, but booking is required. To book please email [email protected]

Snacks and all materials will be provided as usual!

The full schedule and workshop details will be advertised here on our website, across our social media and in our monthly newsletter later this month. So make sure you are following us or have signed up to our mailing list!
