Welcome to York Art Workers Association

The York Art Workers' Association is an eclectic group of craftsmen, artists, conservators, academics and others who share a serious interest in the arts. Members represent architectural craftsmanship, other applied arts, all fine arts, architecture and conservation.  We welcome not only practitioners in these fields, whether amateur or professional, but anyone with a keen interest or appreciation of art and design.  We exist to extend and share our knowledge and experience through a widely varied programme of monthly talks, normally on the first Monday of the month (doors open at 7pm). We also organise occasional courses, workshops, outings and social events. Our talks are open to anyone. 

We meet at Southlands Methodist Church, Bishopthorpe Road, York YO23 1NX. There is parking at the church, on nearby streets and in the local car park by the shops, a few minutes' walk away. There is cycle parking too and it is on a bus route. There is level access and the meeting room is on the ground floor.  

Admission: members £2, non members £5.

There is no need to book - please feel free just to turn up!

If you would like to know more about the association, please email info@yorkartworkers.org.uk, or come to the next meeting; we will be very pleased to see you.

April 8th           

Chris Moss, Sculptor

                                                         

 

Chris’s creative practice has evolved from a love of drawing in two dimensions to making three dimensional sketches in wire and mesh, and exploring connections between the two approaches. Subject matter is representational,  organic forms from the natural world; birds, beasts and botanical with an empirical approach. Chris will include a review of work to date, including making sculptures of sheep for the Yorkshire Sculpture Park based on the sketches of Henry Moore.

Chris is on Facebook and Instagram as Chris Moss Wire Sculpture
