Reading Time: 2 minutes
The shortest month of the year is a day longer in 2024, so maybe that’s how local venues are cramming so much in, but there’s loads happening in February across the Jewellery Quarter
RBSA are kicking off the year with their annual Friends exhibition which runs until 10th February. We are also really excited for The Black Country: Photographs by Phil Loach 1970s – 1990s which opens on the 13th February for 2 weeks. Their art workshops are also back with everything from Oil painting to Monoprint and Collage.
There’s a new exhibition at Stryx from 1st February until the 25th by artist Jasmine Lee called Lines of Incidence. The line of incidence is a phenomenon in physics where rays of substance hit a surface. Line of incidences also reflects a concept in geometry of two points on a graph; making a unique line.
Their free workshops continue a 22nd Century Collage workshop on Saturday 17th February. 21st century materials, 22nd century thinking!
As well as their regular tours and self-guided experiences, The Coffin Works are taking advantage of the dark nights to bring you a special experience with Candlelit Tours– the next one is on 22nd February and promises to be very atmospheric.
The Pen Museum continue with their mission to teach everyone beautiful penmanship with calligraphy workshops on the 18th and 25th of February. These always sell out, so do book in advance!
