Castleford Heritage Trust

Art Taster Workshop

On the fourth Thursday of each month local artist Dave Cawthorne invites you to attend his art workshop.

Dave Cawthorne When he was 18, Dave was paralysed in a rugby accident, something which changed his life forever.  Despite being moved immediately to Pinderfields Spinal Unit, Dave was left with very little movement apart from some in his arms, shoulders and neck. During his time in hospital Dave was introduced to painting as an occupational therapy.  He is now an associate member of the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists and has many of his paintings on Christmas cards and calendars across the world.

The workshop has a small charge of £1 per person to cover admin costs.  Dave runs the classes from 10.000am to 4.00pm but attendees are encouraged to treat the workshops as drop in sessions and can turn up at whatever times are convenient.
The Tea Rooms are open for light lunches on the day of the workshop. For groups of three or more it is advisable to book places in advance.
