Saltaire Saturdays - Tasters

Have you ever thought of joining one of our ‘do something for yourself’ lifestyle & leisure courses? Not quite sure which one, or whether it will be the right fit for you? 

Or perhaps you simply want a new excuse to spend time in our historic buildings in wonderful Saltaire..?  Well, our Saltaire Saturdays could be just the thing for you!

Come and spend a Saturday morning having a go at floral planting, lino printing, life drawing, languages, or whatever else we have on offer. We run an Autumn, Spring and Summer Saltaire Saturday, with different taster sessions available at each, depending on the time of year. 

You could find a new hobby that you love, you could make new friends, or even uncover a skill that could set you off on a new adventure!

We charge a small fee for these tasters to cover costs, then provide free refreshments and other giveaways on the day alongside your taster.  At the end of your session you can sign up to a longer course, be kept informed about future Saltaire Saturdays, or simply take your morning’s creation off home - or to one of Saltaire’s cafes or bars to discuss your Saturday experience!
