Stroud based artist and entrepreneur Katherine Bryan-Merrett has teamed up with Miles Owen one of the founding directors of Ecotopia, and Very Software Directors Sergei Golubev & Vitalij Kudresov to launch Let’s Try Arts. Starting in Gloucestershire then being rolled out nationwide, Let’s Try Arts is an exciting way to search for and book on to creative workshops.
"There are so many fantastic workshops, courses and classes being offered by artists but we rarely get to hear about them. I wanted to make it simple to find out what’s going on in your area by creating a ‘one-stop-shop’ for creative workshops and activities” Katherine goes on to say “making it easy for both the artist and for their customers, our aim is to become the biggest on-line platform for creative workshops.”
Local arts venues such as; Victoria Works Studios, Hawkwood College, Atelier and SIT select have been some of the first to get involved by adding their upcoming workshops, courses and classes to the Let’s Try Arts website. Not only will the site help local people find out what’s going on but it could also have an impact on tourism.
It is a website for finding creative activities in your local area: drawing, craft, textiles, sculpture, dance, music, writing... you name it!
"Art has always been a joyful thing to participate in, to watch, to experience, to learn about, to grow with and further develop your own skills and expertise. Our focus here at Let's Try Arts is to make it more accessible to more people. We believe that art and being creative are things to enjoy and have fun with, we want everyone to have a go at something new. Who knows, you might just find a secret talent you never knew about."
