Creative Kirklees Newsletter 2 October 2018


Two new organisations with very similar names have joined Creative Kirklees this week so we thought we would give them a mention so you don’t get confused!
Huddersfield Art Society is a group of artists whose activities include demonstrations, lectures and workshops, drawing and painting groups – the highpoint of their year being their Annual Exhibition currently showing at Huddersfield Art Gallery; and then we have the Arts Society Huddersfield which is part of a network of over 90,000 people worldwide who offer a unique programme of monthly activities.
Hope you enjoy browsing through this week’s newsletter and remember this is just a selection of what's on offer.
Do check our website to see more and you can find us on facebook and twitter too!
