Connecting with Creativity E-Postcard.pn

Take some time out and unwind with free, creative weekly workshops via Zoom for Croydon Carers Support Centre.

These sessions are open to anyone - you don't need to have any previous creative or art experience to join in.

 

Come and connect with others and make space to try out different creative techniques or themes each week using simple materials. You'll be able to go at your own pace in a friendly and supportive environment. 

Sign up to one or many sessions. Everyone's welcome.

Let me know if you need any art materials/ supplies as we have a small budget to help with this.

"Steph's art class was the highlight of my week! I have realised how important it is for me to take the time to completely zone out and do something creative. Totally relaxing and fun and it really works on Zoom. I have learned a lot of new techniques which I am continuing to do. It was also nice to meet the other people and to see what they created, plus pick up ideas!"
