Art In The Archives

Learn about Wigan Borough’s art history and create your own art with the help of guest artists Anna and Klaire.

Join us here in Leigh Town Hall for 6 free fantastic Art in the Archives sessions.

Anna and Klaire will spend each week delivering a lecture about the life and work of artists connected to Wigan Borough with research from the archives.

The classes are combined with practical art activities inspired by the lectures for you to take part in. By the end of each class, you will have new found knowledge on the work and life of a fabulous artist.
