Since our building closed at the end of March, we’ve been devising new and exciting ways of bringing what we do to our local community at home. Our Family Fun team, who usually run free monthly creative workshops for families with children aged 5-14, have put together a series of activities that people can access online. New activities will be posted every month and they are all based around low cost, everyday materials that are easily found in the home. Keep an eye on our website here as this series develops.
As well as this, our Family Fun team have designed, assembled and delivered our first batch of free art packs to local community centres. They are filled with everything a family needs to take part in fun creative activities at home. Our thanks to Phoenix Community Association and Pankhurst Community Association who will be distributing them with food parcels this week.
Our adult creative course programme has now moved online, you can find more details here. The first to be launched: Watercolour for Beginners with Emily Jolley, starts on Tuesday 19 May, and runs between 2pm and 4pm for five weeks. This is a fantastic way of enjoying a creative activity with limited materials whilst staying at home. More courses such as graphic novels, portrait photography and life drawing will be programmed in the coming weeks. Watch this space! Free places on these courses are available for Hyde Housing residents, we can help with materials costs too, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
