Community – Commissions & Workshops

Bus and Bird Arts designs experiences to develop creativity in all ages and abilities. Clare Taylor runs workshops in the unlikeliest of places, from dimly lit corners of nightclubs through to patients isolated in hospital beds. Get in touch to kick-start your creativity or build upon existing skills.

Our daily rate ranges upwards from £200 depending on the type of work that is undertaken, for example ceramics sessions may cost more due to the firing and finishing. Our half day rate is £125 and hourly rate (where applicable) is £60 (prep time inclusive). Please feel free to ring Clare Taylor on +44 7738718930 to discuss your budgetary requirements. At present, Bus and Bird Arts covers the counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire but will consider travelling further afield.

“The question is not what can the public do for the arts but what is it that the arts can do for the wider public and their own local communities?” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
