Welcome to York Art Workers Association

The York Art Workers' Association is an eclectic group of craftsmen, artists, conservators, academics and others who share a serious interest in the arts. Members represent architectural craftsmanship, other applied arts, all fine arts, architecture and conservation.  We welcome not only practitioners in these fields, whether amateur or professional, but anyone with a keen interest or appreciation of art and design.  We exist to extend and share our knowledge and experience through a widely varied programme of monthly talks, normally on the first Monday of the month (doors open at 7pm). We also organise occasional courses, workshops, outings and social events. Our talks are open to anyone. 

We meet at Southlands Methodist Church, Bishopthorpe Road, York YO23 1NX. There is parking at the church, on nearby streets and in the local car park by the shops, a few minutes' walk away. There is cycle parking too and it is on a bus route. There is level access and the meeting room is on the ground floor.  

Admission: members £2, non members £5.

There is no need to book - please feel free just to turn up!

If you would like to know more about the association, please email info@yorkartworkers.org.uk, or come to the next meeting; we will be very pleased to see you.


Upcoming Events

 

 Visit to Beverley Puppet Festival

(the festival runs from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th July, watch this space for details of our visit)

Since 2005, Beverley Puppet Festival has welcomed thousands of audience members to experience the transformative, unique and inclusive world of puppetry. Puppetry is for everyone, not just children. Puppetry creates magic though mixing many artistic disciplines, drawing people of all ages and backgrounds into other worlds. We aim to bring out the adult within the child and the child within the adult, to spark creative and critical thinking, to think outside the box. 

The Festival takes place once every two years across a weekend in July. Giant, fantastical creatures roam Beverley’s historic streets. Tiny, magical worlds are revealed to unsuspecting audiences in the Friary Gardens. The best of UK and European puppet theatre is brought to venues throughout the town for residents and visitors of all ages to enjoy. In 2015 Beverley Puppet Festival won the Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Award for 'Remarkable Small Tourism Event' for the 2014 festival, and was a finalist again in 2017 and 2019.
