The Autumn Term begins on Monday 19th September 2022 - The Schedule is available on this item on our News Page
'Inspiration from Unusual Places' - Visit the Darlington Locomotive Works this Autumn
Each term we are arranging a talk at The Bridge or visit to somewhere which we think will be of interest to a range of our groups or to members of the public to come along to.
The one for our Autumn term is a visit to Darlington Locomotive Works at 3pm on Monday 8th October.
The purpose is to see the latest steam locomotive under construction there. This is a P2 class locomotive and will eventually be named "The Prince of Wales". Those attending will hear a short introduction about the project and then be free to roam around the workshops taking photos or making sketches of the part built loco, the interior of the workshops, parts and machines, and (daylight and weather permitting) the exterior architecture of the workshop buildings and surrounding derelict sidings.
The idea is to provide inspiration in an industrial setting for art to be completed later within the classes and groups at The Bridge. It should be noted that this is for personal use only. Anyone wanting to take or make images for commercial use must separately obtain the relevant permissions from the Workshop Trust.
The visit will end at 4:30pm. Anyone wanting to attend needs to obtain a free ticket from us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org beforehand.
Ticket(s) will be emailed back or can be collected from The Bridge office. Sign in at the Locomotive Works will be at 3pm and people need to make their own arrangements for transport to and from the works.
The Bridge provides a vibrant community led venue to support artists and encourage visual arts involvement for Darlington. Many artists who had a presence at the Darlington Arts Centre can now be found at The Bridge Centre. It is also the home of other arts-based organisations.
