MAKE IT Open Exhibition

Sat 25th January - Sat 14th March
Launch Event Friday 24th January, 6.30pm - 8.30pm

We’re excited to announce that we’re launching a new project in 2020 thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund. MAKE IT is a twelve month long program of creative workshops, making projects, and exhibitions designed to bring people together and build the creative community in Wigan.

To launch MAKE IT, we’re holding an open exhibition in our gallery, in order to showcase the wide range of creative talent and craftsmanship that Wigan beholds. The MAKE IT open exhibition will include work from artists and makers who currently live, or have previously lived, in Wigan borough. 

There’ll be work from both professional and hobbyist artists and makers aged from one to one hundred and one - it’ll be an eclectic display of what the most creative of Wigan’s residents past and present have to offer. Come and see!
