The fifth and final meet up before we take a summer break is upon us. Once again we've pulled out all of the stops to curate an event with amazing stories, insight and creative talent from across the region.
Our first speaker is Kath Shackleton, Producer and Co-owner of Fettle Animation. A highly creative 2D animation company based in Marsden, Fettle have won numerous awards for their work, including recent nominations for their work for BBC Learning.
Have you heard of Hebden Trouser Company? If not, you should have! HebTroCo is about proper trousers, made in the last trouser factory in Trouser Town - Hebden Bridge. Launched on Kickstarter in January 2016, Brant Richards and his partner Ed Oxley are selling moleskin and corduroy proper trousers all over the world using social media, beer and pop up events.
Our fifth event celebrates the start of a four week pop-up exhibition of work from Audrey Erbany De Koning here at Co Up. Audrey is a successful, professional contemporary Dutch artist who moved to the U.K. in 2006 and then to Yorkshire in 2012.
‘Audrey Erbany; Professional, contemporary artist with an impressionistic style. She has the ability to transfer her life experience, emotions and past impressions into works of art. Her Art will capture and hold your interest! Her Paintings are mainly oil paint on canvas and for her Sculptures; she works in bronze, wood, stone and ceramic.’
Finally, and in the hope of some proper summer weather, we will have the pleasure of tasting wonderful handmade ice-creams from artisan Gelato maker, Eric Joyce with coffee from Vanilla Bean in Slaithwaite.
