Pop up creativity..

Today some more creativity happened..

Funded by North Somerset Community Learning, people came together at the North Somerset Training Community Interest Company hub to make festive crafts, be together and connect with people.

Amongst the activities there was card designing, bauble decorating and wood slice tree decorations made.

Everyone that attended the session enjoyed being in the safe space and relaxed into the gentle way of expressing themselves, as well as showing willingness to get involved and unlock thier creative licenses.

Clients who access community services often think that they are not creative but end up finding out that have skills they didn’t know they had.

It is a great feeling to be able to bring creative joy at this time of year to people who are looking for ways to connect, get involved and grow.

The workshop was led by community artist; Bev g Star and assisted by Emz from Lemonie Art.

We would like to thank everyone that help us to help other humans grow and those that enable us to do such work.

Wishing everyone a gentle festive season and we remind you all to take time out to rest, recover and explore your creative side.



The Creative Recovery project was a great success

The Creative Recovery Exhibition

We have taken part in some wonderful projects over the years that have enabled us to connect with the community. We are so thankful for being able to be part of the Creative Recovery project.

The project is all about incorporating creativity and encouragement to people who are recovering from substance abuse.

The project ended with an exhibition of the work created on one of the ten week courses; the whole town was invited and it was a great show.

This project was facilitated by That Creative Thingy Wotsit and funded by the National lottery fund and North Somerset Council.

The project gave us opportunity to work with; Weston Super Rocks, Sefton Park Rehabilitation Centre, Orchard Community Housing, That Creative Thingy Wotsit, Weston Artspace and many more.

As the project grew organically, members who took part in the project were given the opportunity to put thier skills to good use and feel like they have something to contribute by giving back.

Mannie who was on the pilot project contributed his film and media skills and made this wonderful documentary to highlight the wonderful impact the course had.

We are so thankful to have had this opportunity and it has been wonderful to have eveyones support.

We are hoping to do host some creative projects and grow some of our ideas in 2022 so stay tuned….

Humans of Weston



“We stock costume jewellery and  50% of the profits go to a charity.

Last year I raised £136 Macmillan cancer and this year we are raising money for a local charity; Weston Hospice care.

It is good to do a little bit for someone else.”
