Creative Wellbeing Sessions - Winter 2024

11 January – 15 February 2024


Two Queens Creative Wellbeing Group

Thursday Afternoons, 1-4pm – January 11th – February 15th

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. No booking is required, and there is no pressure to attend every week or all of every session, just drop in whenever you would like to. It is free to take part, and all materials and light refreshments are provided.

This block of 6 sessions will run on Thursday Afternoons, 1-4pm.
