Creative Classes in Liverpool

Let your creative juices flow with these classes in Liverpool...

Liverpool is a hub of creative activity with more museums and galleries than any other city outside of London and a history of successful creatives - it's easy to see why the city attracts a creative crowd. So whether you need to scratch that creative itch or you want to try something totally new, look no further than these creative classes in Liverpool.

Print Studios @ The Bluecoat

Whether you're a complete novice or you have some experience with printing techniques, The Bluecoat has a print workshop for suitable you. Starting from Printmaking for Beginners right through to Intermediate Screen Printing, there is a wide option of classes depending on your experience. Classes run from 11-am - 5pm and cost £60 - well worth it if you start turning your newfound skill into a source of income. Here's what the Bluecoat have to say about their print classes;

We offer introductory workshops for beginners and intermediate workshops for those who would like to expand their print knowledge - all taught by experts in their field.

Sketching @ Sefton Park Palm House

Sketching a beautiful, exotic palm house on a Sunday afternoon. Need we say more? This sketch class ran by Dot-art and artist Josie Jenkins is a 3 hour workshop (£25) that will give you the opportunity to learn basic techniques to help you draw from observation. The workshop aims to help you express what you see through drawing, all in the inspiring surroundings of the Sefton Park Palm House. The next class is July 9th 2017 and you can buy tickets here.

Graffiti Classes @ Zap Graffiti

Although graffiti is illegal and sometimes frowned upon, it's still an art form. A powerful one too. Zap Graffiti have managed to bridge the gap between art form and 'vandalism' by promoting graffiti as a positive art form. Those interested in graffiti can start with a beginners class for £20 where they are given spray paint and a blank canvas to let their creativity run wild. For those who want to take it up as a hobby, Zap Graffiti welcome artists to use their wall space instead of graffitiing in the surrounding areas.

We provide sanctioned walls for folks of all ages to get creative. If after the class you wish to carry it on as a hobby, we have the space to do it.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
