Welcome to the March Saturday Sessions!

Join us for our weekend Gallery opening, building tours and free monthly family craft session.


Throughout the day you'll be able to view The Fading City exhibition. 

New print work by Jemma Gunning and Tracey Thorne inspired by building textures and typography.

Meet the Artist, 12pm

Join the artist Tracey Thorne for an interactive tour of her work featured in the exhibition and hear more about her original documentary photograph project recording ghost signs in Birmingham. Tracey will share during the session some additional photographic material and objects that help tell the story of the buildings featured in the exhibition. The talk focuses on how the craft of sign-writing helped add character and individuality to our streets which is important when you want to create places that matter to people.
