We host a fantastic mix of arts and crafts workshops, from painting to printing, sewing to sculpture and more! Our exhibitions focus on the talented and diverse artists . Plus, we host combined events which join art fairs, workshops and exhibitions together into one, all day event! We aim to brighten up the art scene and lead the way in creating some amazing art events for all. We aim to show that art can be for everyone, and made by anyone!

Meet the team

Domino | The Owner

Hey! My name is Domino (not Dominique, or Domina or Dominic – like I usual get called haha!). I have always had a passion for art and I studied Fine Art at University of Lincoln. I wanted to combine my passion for art and my ridiculous need to be an organiser and my love for events, hence the launch of Cotton On Creative. Outside of work I love to travel, and spent 6 months in Asia (with a stop in New Zealand) for a long, extended honeymoon. I had my first little girl in December 2020, named Luna, and she is literally the most amazing thing ever! If I ever get free time, I love to bake and watch Disney films, and I can’t wait for the day that Luna and I create dance routines to Disney songs together!

Emily Seville – Workshop Assistant

Hi I’m Emily, a visual artist and maker based in Manchester. I mostly work in ceramics and painting, through which I explore our relationship and connection to the natural world. I’m really passionate about making the arts more accessible so I’m looking forward to encouraging people to be creative at Cotton On Creative’s workshops!

Hannah Cahill – Social Media Manager

As my job title suggests, I assist Domino in managing the social media accounts for Cotton On Creative. It’s my job to promote the amazing events across Manchester and Leeds. To say I’m excited to be a part of this wonderful team would be an understatement!

I’ve worked in really diverse marketing roles to date, but I’ve recently taken the plunge into the world of freelancing; I’m now the full-time business owner of joy marketing. Outside of marketing, you’ll find me buried in a good book, tending to my ever-growing collection of houseplants or cooking up some tasty vegetarian grub!

 

Louise Garman - Artist

I’m a Chelsea School of Art Fine Art and Sculpture graduate. My work is uncompromising, experimental, multi-media images with the volume tuned up to the unreal. For Cotton On MCR I lead fun, hands-on, expressive art workshops for adults that cater for everyone. I also run workshops in an array of setting from cruise ships to the local community, art gallery and private social gatherings.
