Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Artist Arise 2016 is an event to inspire and release creativity. Being hosted by Art Vision, it will take place from 27-29 October 2016 in Sale, Manchester and builds on the success of Creative Hearts Awake 2015. You will have the opportunity to meet and learn from fellow creatives from across the region and internationally, take part in engaging workshops and explore your creativity. It will also be an opportunity for you to get to know God, the Master Artist and Creator at a deeper level and learn new skills.

During Artist Arise, Karl Fletcher will be talking about Art Vision, the eclectic creative arts group he founded and share his vision and dream for the group. Evenings will involve worship and a line-up of memorable guest speakers. Day times will see an assortment of absorbing workshops for you to participate in and perhaps try out new techniques including watercolour painting, cold wax, crochet, art journalling, dance,  spinning and felt making, wire trees, the colour of sound, textiles and much much more.

Please note that Karl Fletcher, Mayra Pankow and Janet Iceley are all doing  full-day intensive workshops  spanning Workshop 1 and Workshop 2 on October 28.
