We’ve started a new initiative this Autumn to get our space clearer and easier to use, sadly creativity is a messy business and we have no staff to clear up after us! We ♥ ArtSpace will run at roughly monthly intervals.
You are invited to our second session on Thursday 15th November 2018 1pm till 4pm. Come and get stuck in to some serious Cleaning, Sorting and organising.
At the first one there was lots of laughter, music, endless brews and not one, not two, but three lovely Cakes!
After the first session we’re starting to reclaim the floor, however there’s a long way to go to get from this:
to what we started with 5 years ago, on balance though I think we’ll be keeping the kitchen! 🙂

Today was the very first We ♥ ArtSpace: a determined team of over 15 people showed their love for ArtSpace and got stuck in to some serious sorting, cleaning and organising (and horror of horrors, chucking stuff away!!).
There was lots of laughter, music, endless brews (and lovely soup, thank you Janet!) and not one, not two, but three lovely Cakes!
A mega mega thank you to Henshaws Envirocare Ltd for donating a maxi skip to ArtSpace to help us with our clear out. There were those who thought it would take all weekend to fill it, no, we did it in an afternoon!!
Now look at our lovely space, still loads to do, however we can see the floor.

You are invited to the very first We ♥ ArtSpace on Friday 26th October from 1 till 4pm (yes I know it says 1 till 3 in the picture, come along anyway!). Come and join the party!

On Saturday the 20th October ArtSpace is running a Spooktastic family event in the Market Place: come along between 10am and 3pm if you dare, and join the fun. There will be lots of spooky makes to exercise your creative talents including badge making and biscuit decorating, and for a small donation, keep the inner person satisfied with Pizza, soup and hot drinks.
From 11pm until 3pm IDST are having a Scariest Scarecrow competition: Specialist makers and artists from many different fields will help you make your scarecrow scary!Bring old clothes and scrap materials, inspiration from folk horror/sci fi/your nightmares and £5 to enter. We will offer you our technical expertise, art materials and straw!
The scarecrows will be judged by author and master of the macabre and mysterious, Doug Pickford, in the atmospheric surroundings of Christ Church the following weekend at 2pm on Sunday 28th October (Treacle Market day). The scariest wins a prize…
All ages and abilities welcome. Join us for the first Macclesfield Scariest Scarecrow Competition! (Unless one existed in the past….)
How did you spend your Tuesday? At ArtSpace we’ve been jazzing up 300 plastic ducks for the Windyway Duck Race on Bank holiday Monday.
They were all yellow and a bit boring
First they all got numbers on the bottom:
Then the team were challenged to make each duck individual! Everyone got joined in, Rossendale Canalsiders, duty volunteers and regular ArtSpacers, we even managed to snag a passing Windyway person!
We thought it would take all week, however it turns out that decorating ducks is curiously addictive. Apart from a little bit of touching up and the addition of numbers to the tops of the ducks we’re all done on the first afternoon. Great fun was had by all.
We moved into our Heapy street premises in September 2013 and this will be our 5th AGM. We couldn’t have got here without our lovely ArtSpacers.
Meetings can be a bit boring and some of us are having to go to a lot of them while we work together to make Artspace better and continue to achieve more. So we intend to try and make the business side of meeting for the AGM short and sweet, and then get stuck into celebrating our 5th birthday and exploring the magnificent ideas and activities that will take us towards a great future.
Please come and join us on Tuesday 18th September at 7pm at ArtSpace. As part of the evening it is planned to have a “brainstorming” to look at the future development of ArtSpace and The Print Mill. So we invite you all to come along with your ideas for exciting possibilities of what we could be doing.
All welcome, more details to follow, however there will definitely be cake!!
