We are so thrilled at the success and growth of the workshop audience we have built during our time at Queen’s University. It has been a joy to see both old and lots of new faces! Due to the growth in the demand for our outreach programme and the small nature of our team, from now on we’re asking people to use our new online booking system thanks to Art Fund. Don’t worry, it’s still completely free!

It is necessary to book into both our Family and Teen & Adult Workshops, and our April Community Workshops. Our workshop bookings work on a first-come, first-served basis so please book ahead to avoid disappointment. As always, all our workshops are free and all materials and snacks are provided.

How to book:  

  1. Follow this link to our Art Fund events page
  2. Select the workshop you would like to attend.
  3. Hit the BOOK button.
  4. Select the number of tickets for each person attending. If you book tickets for the Family Workshop please include adult numbers too!
  5. Follow the prompts to fill in your details and email address.
  6. You should receive a confirmation email from Art Fund containing all the details of the workshop.

Please note: the booking system will ask if you would like to donate – this is a donation to Art Fund and NOT Golden Thread Gallery, and it is completely optional.

That’s it, happy booking!

If you have any questions or issues using the system, please email us.

About our workshops programme

For those who are new to us, GTG was previously based in Great Patrick Street. This summer, we’ll move into our new home in the old Craftworld building on Queen Street.

Our new Belfast City Centre home will feature bespoke gallery spaces for our exhibitions and a participation and engagement hub for the vital work that we do connecting communities to culture and arts. The Hub is supported by our Calouste Gulbenkian Civic Arts Organisation of the Year award and by the Ampersand Foundation.

Once again, we would like to thank our partners the Naughton Gallery at Queen’s University Belfast for providing us with a space to facilitate our outreach programme during our closure period.

Golden Thread Gallery is supported by:
