Being a freelance creative is brilliant but it can also be quite isolating and so we hope these bi-monthly sessions will become a regular opportunity to get out to the studio and socialise with other like minded creatives.
The sessions will take place on Monday evenings from 6-8pm. The sessions will be free to attend but like our MNL’s we will ask makers to confirm they’re coming using Eventbrite. This allows us to confirm attendance numbers and keep track of those attending.
