The Arts collective Collective is a constituted group that was established with the aim of creating a welcoming and collaborative environment for
people to develop their skills and artistic aims through working in printmaking and ceramics. We meet weekly (Thursday ceramics, Friday printmaking) at Rural Arts in Thirsk. There are currently 25 regular members of all abilities and backgrounds and we aspire to develop synergies with other visual arts groups. We promote inclusivity by confidence building through teamwork giving the opportunity for everyone to develop their artistic expression in a non-judgemental environment.
