Volunteering opportunities….

Volunteer here!!

If you like what Eden Arts do and you have some spare time on your hands why not come and volunteer with us.

We have recently taken over The Old Fire Station in Penrith and are transforming it into a community arts space and starting to put on arts events and activities there. It needs some sprucing up, so if you fancy coming to help paint a room we are setting up a Monday painting and decorating session.

There are also opportunities around helping us set up and run events / exhibitions both at the Fire Station and other venues around Cumbria, as well as office admin and other random bits and pieces that are a little more adhoc.

If you would like to be involved either pop along to the Fire Station on Monday 2nd Feb between 12 and 5pm and join our first painting session or drop us an email with your name, email address, contact telephone no. and a brief overview of your skills or things you are interested in helping us with and we will put you on our volunteer list and send you stuff to get involved in.

Email heather@edenarts.co.uk or call 01768 899444.

    I worked for 23 yrs in the borders as a textile designer, which involved designing seasonal collections and customer specials, liaising with customers, selling at trade show, mill quality control and technical weaving supervision. I took early redundancy 5 yrs ago and I am now painting at home. I’m very flexible and enjoy working in a team. Not available monday afternoon and thursday morning.
