Thackley mother sets up an art school in Idle

A Saturday art school for children is under way in Idle, Bradford, thanks to mum Virginija Knowles who spotted a gap in the market.

Mrs Knowles, of Thackley, and originally from Lithuania, could not find anywhere for her eight and 11-year-old children to do out-of-school art – so decided to do something about it.

She got together with two art teachers to set up Idle Art Studio at Thackley Methodist Church under the Young Masters brand which is running for 14 sessions from 11am to 12.30pm.

Call her on 07753 513869 for details.
