Creating a Workshop in an envelope (over three sessions) – Location Nottingham City Centre

  • Friday 8th October 10:30am – 12:30

This is a fantastic opportunity to develop and create a ‘Workshop in an Envelope’ with Andrea Hadley-Johnson, Creative Producer and Curator from the National Justice Museum.

The National Justice Museum started to produce workshops in envelopes during lockdown as a way in which the public could still continue to be involved in their creative sessions.  Needless to say these were a create success.

We now have the opportunity to develop and create one of these.  This will involve 3 sessions over 3 months where there will initially be points and themes of discussion within the group to come up with the principles that will then be used to create the workshop which will be available for all to enjoy.  Within this project there will be an opportunity to look round the museum itself too.

Friday 24th September 10– 11am

Join us for an exclusive workshop with published writer, Sophie Sparham from Derbyshire. Sophie has previously run creative writing sessions via zoom with BWP, which were really well received by the women who came along, inspiring them to write some absolutely amazing pieces.

Some of the women had not written before but because of their new found love of writing have continued to do so since.  Creative writing has many mental, emotional and physical health benefits.  Enabling the space to freely express thoughts, feelings and emotions in your own words.   On 24th September Sophie will be facilitating this session, with the theme looking at life journeys and aspirations.
