idle women: Friday Social

idle women: Friday Social

6 - 8pm

Celebrate the end of the working week with idle women by the canalside.

We invite the women of Dewsbury, Ravensthorpe, Mirfield and beyond to come aboard the Selina Cooper Narrowboat.

Join us for a relaxed evening of discussion about art and hot food, with friends old and new.

Suitable for those with lots, little or no experience in experiencing or creating art. All women are welcome. Girls under age 16 must be accompanied by a guardian.
