This event is for STEAMhouse members only

Artist Chris Alton will lead participants through a reflective process focussed on their own creative practice. Working individually and collaboratively, participants will utilise practice mapping to take stock, and trace the connections between their past and present projects.

This session is for artists, makers and other creatives who are already STEAMhouse members. Find out how to join HERE
