Armonia Building

Bringing arts and crafts to your local neighbourhood

Deepwell Arts in Leicester has entered into a collaboration with Armonia Music Tuition and Creative Space, a well established creative venue at Martyrs Church Hall in the heart of the West End of Leicester. Deepwell Arts aims to bring new life to the area with a mix of arts and crafts workshops, drop-in sessions, occasional events and open studio times. Contact me directly to book a special event – a pottery party or similar, for instance making clay animals, painting tiles or ceramic vases – or an individual or small group pottery session.

We have plans to host exhibitions and evening talks. Please do get in touch if you want to discuss an event or workshop you would be interested in offering under the banner of Deepwell Arts.
