Creswell Gets More Creative

This month members of the group ran a workshop with residents of Victoria House in Creswell and pupils from Hodthorpe Primary School. Both sessions were Easter themed and members volunteered to both plan and take the lead in delivering the workshops. They were a great success for everyone involved.

Art in Warm Spaces


As our presence at the Warm Spaces is becoming more established people have been coming along specifically for our workshops and over the last month at the Whitworth Centre in Darley Dale participants made cards using beautiful Indian wood blocks and have also decorated glass vases with mosaic tiles.



Over the past few weeks our project co-ordinator Jemma, alongside Kalila from People Express, Alma from City Arts and Kieran from Soft Touch Arts have been delivering training to youth workers and young creatives in developing and sustaining creative businesses.

The team delivered 3 days of workshops from their ‘Artployment’ learning in Colombia last year.
