About IOU Making It
Making It sessions include everything from clock-making and welding, writing and choreography, to verbatim theatre and life drawing. Held monthly at IOU’s Studio at Dean Clough, Halifax the sessions are an opportunity to explore a wide range of skills and techniques from a broad sweep of artists and crafts-people working in the region and are an opportunity for artists, creatives and makers of any discipline to come together for experimentation, exchange of ideas, networking and skills sharing.
