Our #CreativeAutumn programme is now in full swing!

A range of craft packs, online workshops and in-person workshops, there’s so much to get involved in.

The wide-ranging programme includes writing bootcamps; a comedy writing workshop; singing sessions; the opportunity to learn and be inspired by ‘awesome artists’; a wide range of craft packs to complete at home; calligraphy classes; mixed paper crafts; photography courses; ukulele taster sessions; sculpture taster sessions and pottery and ceramics taster sessions.


Our Craft Packs are created by some incredible artists and are designed to help those who are isolated feel better connected. These craft packs are for people in Sunderland and South Tyneside who may be isolated, alone and use arts and crafts to engage them through regular support in the creative endeavours.

Pay What You Feel

Our #CreativeAutumn workshop programme operates on a ‘Pay What You Feel’ model. This is part of our effort to encourage more people to get involved in arts and cultural activities. This means we don’t include a charge on the workshops upfront to ensure that cost isn’t a factor that deters anyone from taking part. This also removes the risk of paying for something that you might not enjoy. It does mean, if you do enjoy it, and can afford to pay more, you can. We want great arts and culture to be for all people, not just those that can afford it.

If you enjoyed the online workshops and would like to make a payment to support the running costs, this is greatly received.  We’ve suggested some amounts below and you can simply click the amount you’d like to pay and complete the details (this payment will be processed by Stripe). If the amount you want to pay isn’t there, we suggest using the ‘Pay What You Decide – £1‘ option and adjusting the quantity to suit. 

Please note there is no obligation to make a payment.

Creating a safe online space

In order to ensure our online spaces stay safe for everyone involved, we ask you to familiarise yourself with our workshop Code of Conduct.
