Two Queens Creative Wellbeing Group

Thursday Mornings, 10am-12 – October 19th – November 30th

Two Queens Creative Wellbeing Group aims to provide a supportive space for artists based in Leicester to come together, make and socialise. The group is open to anyone who feels they would benefit from taking part.

Each week we plan an optional fun creative activity to take part in, with plenty of time just to socialise and enjoy a cup of tea. There is no pressure to attend every week or all of every session, just drop in whenever you would like to. All materials and light refreshments are provided.

This block of 6 sessions will run on Thursday Mornings 10am-12:

October 19th – Acrylic Painting: 10 x 12″ canvas boards provided, or feel free to bring your own support to paint on
