Fancy joining us for an inclusive, fun, and maybe messy couple of hours?! Each event is completely free to attend and includes all of the resources and knowledge you’ll need! The event is open to LGBTQ+ people aged from 16 and upwards but we primarily focus on people over 18! We can welcome a limited number of under 16’s if they bring along an adult.
Being creative is considered to be a leading form of mindfulness and is a great way to improve your general wellbeing. We combine this fantastic skill with LGBTQ+ identities to provide a safe space to allow you to explore and express your identity in a supportive environment.
In previous workshops we’ve focused on different media such as a making collages and painting! For every workshop, we will welcome an LGBTQ+ creative to come along and talk about, demonstrate, and provide the equipment, for you to give it a shot! So that you can rest assured that you’ll have the best time, we work with the creatives to develop their session plans and support them to make sure everyone can get involved in the activities provided. Usually, everyone leaves with a little something that they’ve put together during the session so you might even end up with a brand new canvas to display!
These spaces also look at authentic expression so you can find different ways to explore and display how you are feeling. Perhaps a moody or colourful painting, using different stitching, or just getting messy! You can use the art and education to explore you in whatever way you’d like.
Most importantly; We welcome all people with abilities, all art levels, and all levels of creativity! This is about you exploring your skills & identity!
We’re currently searching for businesses who’d like to work with us for the next 12 months! If you’re interested in partnership & sponsor agreements then pop an email to Oscar@Blossom.LGBT.
