Over the last five weeks we have delivered an incredibly fun and engaging programme of creative events for Sunderland residents of all ages and backgrounds.
We started the programme with four days of adult and children’s ceramic workshops that took place during the Easter holidays with children choosing to make either a monster pot, money box, pencil holder or plant pot and the results are fantastic!
It was great to see so many talented children come through our doors and create their very own ceramic masterpieces, as well as seeing families spend quality time together during the holidays.
The fun hasn’t stopped there as we have also been busy working with four groups of adults including those who are carers, isolated, unemployed and living in hardship to deliver a programme of events that is filled with creativity, transferrable skills and educational tools.
Learners have had the opportunity to take part in ceramics, fused glass, lino printing and mandala stones painting workshops, enabling them to fully immerse themselves in all things creative and find a new passion that they can continue with in the future.
We’re incredibly grateful to the Sir James Knott Trust for providing us with the funding to deliver on this truly incredible project, as it has allowed us to work with wonderfully creative people who are in need of a little extra support, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and current cost of living crisis.
