Free arts programme for Suffolk’s
‘What is your village made of?’ invites adults (55+) to take part in activities that encourage creativity and connection with others, using their home villages and towns as inspiration.
The programme has been designed as part of Suffolk Artlink’s ‘Make, Do & Friends’ project and will last until the end of March 2021.
Professional artists will publish regular Create activities on a blog site, for you to enjoy at your leisure. Each activity, from photography and drawing to creative writing and printmaking, invites you to explore and enjoy different aspects of your surroundings – and offers the opportunity to share your creations with others.
The artists will also be visiting villages across Mid-Suffolk and Babergh, including Laxfield, Eye, Combs, Buxhall and Westhorpe, where they will connect with village residents to create artworks, drawing on the many and varied ways in which communities connect.
If you fancy getting together, but not face-to-face, then why not join one of the friendly Community online get-togethers? Whether it’s taking part in a writing group or one of the Radio Drama Listening Clubs, these relaxed Zoom sessions will help you develop technical skills and confidence whilst enjoying a creative workshop.
The Zoom sessions are ALL FREE, but booking essential as spaces are limited.
Full information about the activities can be found at www.makedoandfriends.co.uk.
