Workshop Facilitator Opportunity: Henna Tattoos

Pump House Gallery are looking for an artist with experience in working with henna and with families to lead a drop in workshop for all ages.


The Pump House Gallery’s programme has engagement at its core and every Sunday alongside our exhibitions, the gallery host Sunday Socials.  These workshops provide families and people of all ages a regular chance to drop in and participate in a range of free art activities.   They provide a space for people to learn new skills from practicing artists and have fun in a creative environment.


Running alongside our upcoming exhibition At Home by Hetain Patel, the Pump House Gallery is seeking an artist to run a drop in Henna workshop on Sunday 9th March, from 12pm – 4pm, for all ages.

Inspired by Patel’s Eva Series, this workshop will look at using different imagery like comic books illustrations rather than traditional henna patterns to create henna prints onto fabric.  For more information, see Patel’s work here.

Workshops are from 12pm – 4pm with half an hour before and after for set up and take down.

Fee: £125 for your time and travel and up to £50 for materials. You will also be required to have an enhanced CRB check, complete a Risk Assessment and have your own Public Liability insurance.

To apply: Please submit a brief outline of proposed workshop (no more than 1 page), any relevant images and a CV, by email to info@pumphousegallery.org.uk with PHG SUNDAY SOCIAL APPLICATIONS in the subject line by Monday 3rd February.  Please ensure these are no more than 10mb and .docx files are converted to .pdf before sending.

Sign up to our mailing list or join our twitter and facebook groups to be kept up to date with any opportunities as they come up.
