"Pop Up Art School at Huddersfield University is a Big Hit"

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities


Hundreds of people, from students to members of the community, flocked to get creative themselves.

The day – called Pop Up Art School – was the idea of senior lecturer Sarah Williamson, of the university’s School of Education.

She said: “The idea is to create hype, to ‘pop-up’ and hold a fantastic but temporary event and then make it disappear.

“I came up with the idea after reading about pop-up restaurants and shops.

“They have become hugely popular in places like London and Paris – and now we’ve brought it to Huddersfield for the first time!”
