Would you like to learn new skills?  After months of lockdown, the time is right to begin!

Creativity in the Community is an exciting new venture in based at The Word of Life Church; 69-71 North Seaton Road in Ashington. Its aim is to bring people together to learn new skills in a fun and interactive way. Topics covered will include creative writing, arts and crafts, photography and upcycling. New techniques will be taught each week with a chance for everyone to get involved.

A five-week art and craft course will begin on the 19 August from 10 am–12.00 noon. The course will look at different techniques, including chalk paint, shabby chic, paper collage and doodle art. The skills learnt will then be combined to create a decorated box for people to take home. The course and all materials and equipment are free.

The courses will be run adhering to the government guidelines for social distancing and therefore spaces will be limited. For further information or a chance to book your space please contact Phil or Catherine on 07597 061 735 or email graftedbydesign@yahoo.co.uk

The course is funded through the National Lottery Awards for All Community Grant Scheme.
