Are the creative cogs turning? Want to drive your artistic energy forward?

Young Mechanics is a new group for young people age 12 to 19 to make, create and collaborate in regular workshops at Burnley Mechanics.

We want all kinds of artists, from writing, to spoken word, photography, music, whatever your form might be, we want to help you with your creative journey.

After the October half term we will be taking a break to work on some really exciting plans for 2019!

We’ll be taking ourselves out of the mechanics and into Burnley for our last sessions in December.

We want to hear from YOU, about what kind of things they want to make, create, and partake in.

For more information contact Rachel Hawthorn at or call/text 07866 855470.

Sessions are free but a voluntary donation of up to £2.50 per session will help to make this programme more sustainable.
