Workshops will take place in other locations throughout the Borough, including jewellery design for adults and free floral crown making for kids at both Ballymoney Town Hall and Sheskburn House, Ballycastle.
Flowerfield Arts Centre is currently closed due to essential maintenance but it will reopen again on Wednesday 8th June with a full programme as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebration including a screening of a new documentary, Elizabeth II: A Portrait in Parts (2022), and Disney’s Encanto (2021). You can also sign up for creative workshops with a royal twist throughout June including 'Flowers Fit for A Queen', a floristry workshop with award-winning local florist, Elaine Taylor and popular Weekend Wonders workshops for kids aged 5-12 years with a ‘crown and castle’ theme.
From June 23rd- 25th it will host free workshops with creative practitioners from the Northword project which aims to develop new products or works inspired by local stories, helping to bring them to life. The series includes textile artist Angela Turkington (Leopard & Lily), music artists Claire McCartney & Beccy Henderson (VOKXEN), artist Michelle McGarvey, ceramicist Sasha McVey, kilt maker Andrea Chappel, artist Rowena Henderson and storyteller and singer-songwriter Colin Urwin.
