We’re seeking up to four new Non-executive Directors, similar to Trustees in a charity, to join our small but growing and ambitious organisation from early Summer 2022.
Do you have skills or lived experience that could enrich our work, or just feel passionate about art, culture and community in East Leeds and beyond and would like to help make exciting things happen locally?
KIOSK, our mobile makerspace, was in action a couple of days ago for a printmaking workshop at Chapel FM for Leeds City Council’s ‘Culture Programmes’ team.
The workshop was delivered by East Leeds-based artist Ellen Burroughs who recently set up brand new print workshop Lutra (the name is from the Latin for otter) at her home in Gipton.
Ellen took the team through a four-hour workshop that used screen printing techniques to explore the creation of identity through the use of signs and symbols. The result was some beautiful and striking prints experimenting with geometric and organic shapes. We really valued this opportunity to learn more about how KIOSK can work in a variety of settings and with different participants with varying levels of experience and confidence.
Feedback from the Culture Programmes team was really positive and Chapel FM were amazing hosts too. Ellen is a very experienced printmaker and workshop leader and it’s great to have her responses to KIOSK and ideas for how the project can evolve and offer an even better experience for people taking part.
Find out more about her work at www.lutra.studio or @lutrastudio on Instagram. KIOSK will be out on tour again soon, keep an eye on our social media for dates and venues!
