An exciting programme of FREE creative workshops for 11 – 18-year-olds living or at school in Worcestershire.

The Forge is youth led, with participants choosing the art-forms and activities they wish to pursue together. Over eight weeks from October to December 2023 participants will explore a range of creative activities and work together to produce and showcase their own artwork or performance. 

Workshops will be delivered by a facilitator and a specialist creative practitioner who will each share their expertise on a different art form, from fashion and film to dance and graffiti! Participants will learn a variety of new skills and will work as a collective to steer the direction of the project based on what interests them.
