About Ready, Steady, CREATE!
A creative support group, held online via Zoom, for people who would like to discover more about themselves and do creative things alongside others.
Your tutor will support you with gentle, structured sessions that inspire you and offer creative ideas to help you develop your own individual creativity. By making things, and having interesting conversations with others, you will make meaningful connections.
These sessions aren’t focused on one particular art form but offer ideas for a range of responses. Many people express themselves using paint or crayons but you can use clay or papier mache, creative writing or movement, whatever you choose.
The idea is to ‘think’ creatively as well as ‘do’ creative things and each person will express themselves in their own individual way. There will be a different activity each week, sometimes several activities building up to a main one, and we will link our creative work to a supportive and life enhancing approach that will allow space for our feelings and thoughts.
Do you need help to take part?
To make these workshops as inclusive to as many people as we can please let us know any access needs you have when you sign up, and how we can help you to take part.
This might include regular reminders about sessions, support getting onto Zoom, a phone call to explain what to expect before we get started, or a discussion about how you prefer to communicate. If you have a key worker or need support staff, they are welcome to join our sessions to support you to take part.
