idle women: Open Boat

idle women: Open Boat

Every Wednesday evening, idle women invite the women of Dewsbury, Ravensthorpe, Mirfield and beyond to come aboard the Selina Cooper Narrowboat.

This is a weekly free workshop to build new friendships, whilst trying out a range of different arts activities and the tasty snacks on-board.

The workshop is suitable for those with lots, little or no experience in creating art. All women are welcome.

Workshops run every Wednesday from 5:30-7:30pm from 15 March – 31 May. Feel free to come to as many or few as you wish.

Girls under age 16 must be accompanied by a guardian.
