Meet the Artist, Helen Riddle
Where: Cathedral Kitchen

In our Cathedral Kitchen (located in Treacy Hall) we will be welcoming Helen Riddle where you will get the chance to see a selection of Helen's work on display, as well as seeing her stitching her current project, a 7m long wallhanging in free-motion embroidery. The Kitchen will also be open for those wishing to purchase drinks and cakes.

On The Path To Happiness, Mohammad Barrangi
Where: Alleyway between cathedral and Westmorland Street

To round it all off, don't forget to check out the wonderful new mural "On The Path To Happiness" recently installed in the alleyway between the cathedral and Westmorland Street, created by Mohammad Barrangi. The inspiration for the piece comes from Barrangi’s lived experience of immigration and the welcome he received in Wakefield from organisations such as Wakefield Cathedral and The Art House.

No booking is required for visiting any of the above, simply come along and enjoy some of the fine artistic talents on display across the region.
