The Centre’s roster of more than 50 different sessions included pottery, painting and drawing, needlework, jewellery making, woodcarving and more. All activities were run under

COVID-secure protocols and guidelines, with social distancing followed in each studio and face coverings worn at all times.

“It’s been a joy to see the Centre’s building come alive again as students return for workshops,” says QPAC’s Artistic Director Sarah Lewis. “We’ve kept ourselves busy with online activities during lockdown, but there’s nothing quite like seeing every room busy with artistic activity.”

Students are required to pre-book classes to help assist with track-and-trace, and are asked to take out membership with the Centre before attending.

“Attendees have been hugely supportive of the new measures, which are there to ensure that we remain a COVID-secure venue, and also to help the Centre’s long-term future,” says

Sarah. “We want to ensure QPAC is ready for future generations, and every workshop fee and membership payment helps us secure that.”
