The Department for Justice and Arts Council in Northern Ireland support the delivery of the Prison Arts Foundation’s Artist in Residence programme. Throughout the year we showcase the works made by the serving prisoners in our workshops. Over the next two weeks PAF in partnership with Hydebank College will be showcasing student’s artworks in ‘The Barn’ to coincide with their exciting Christmas Fayre.
The students at Hydebank have handmade, grown and baked lots of Christmas inspired pieces for the public to purchase and the ladies from our Inspiring Change @ the MAC, Belfast project funded by the Pilgrim Trust have donated beautifully decorated handmade etched glasses to the Fayre’s crafts.
The art exhibition runs from Mon 7th to Sun 20th December….
the Christmas Fayre runs until Sun 13th December…..
The Barn is on the Prison site and is open to the general public so please come in and have a look around.
