Brin Morris from Artismuk has recently sent some information about a range of new events that they are setting up. As well as the Jenny May, a floating gallery on a canal boat, Artismuk now has a base and studios in Stockport with Seven Miles Out at 20 Market Place, Stockport, SK1 1EY. Brin describes his vision for Artismuk as ‘an inclusive artist studio and gallery for professional and amateur artists, including people on the autistic spectrum’.

Artismuk open studios every Thursday and Friday, 11-4pm. This is a drop in session where artists can come and use the studio to work on their own projects. There is no charge for using the open studio facilities.

Manga Drawing Group every other Saturday from 14th February. This will be run by an Artismuk member and is aimed at people with aspergers and high functioning autism. The group is for people who are interested in this style of art, and offers a chance to socialise. No charge.

MyTime –for parents and carers to work in a group or individually on their own projects. The plan is to run this every other Wednesday and if you are interested, please get in touch with Brin and he will arrange a start date. There is no charge.

Art and drawing classes; writing and drama – for small groups or on an individual basis. Depending on Numbers, there would be a small charge of around £5 to pay for tutors.
