Live Borders Creative Workshops

Our creative workshops offer opportunities to learn new skills in performing and visual arts, develop existing interests, connect with others or explore future training and employment options.

These workshops are designed with wellbeing in mind and can help participants to feel more confident, relaxed and happy as a result of taking part. Every session is facilitated by an experienced artist or creative practitioner and they are safe spaces for self-expression which we endeavour to make accessible to all.

We are currently seeking creative practitioners who are interested leading workshops with us. We are open to proposals from artists, designers, musicians, actors and everyone in between! Practitioners at any stage of their career are welcome to apply and all creatives who work with us are paid in alignment with Scottish Artist Union rates. Interested? Email today.
