Flourish: Arts for Wellbeing workshops in 2018

We are pleased to announce funding from RBKC for ACAVA to deliver Flourish: Arts for Wellbeing workshops at The Curve until the end of the summer term.

In response to our taster sessions delivered at The Curve in November and December, we have programmed the following activities and courses for North Kensington residents, which include opportunities for adults, children and the whole community.

We now have a dedicated twitter account @ACAVAFlourish to follow for regular updates.

Read on for further details and to book your place on one of our courses.



Screen printing

Commencing Wednesday 24th January, participants will work with artist Heather Fiona Martin to learn the step by step process of screen printing, including designing and cutting paper stencils, printing onto textiles such as bags, cushion covers and tea towels, and using a range of colours in a design.

All the workshops are FREE for local residents and will take place at The Curve on Wednesday mornings 10am-1pm on the following dates: 24th Jan / 31st Jan / 7th Feb / 21st Feb / 28th Feb / 7th March.

This is a bookable course where participants can build on their skills week by week, producing a selection of textiles to keep or give to family and friends.

Community Mosaic Project

24 February to 17 March 

Working with artist Emily Fuller over four consecutive Saturday afternoons, friends and neighbours will be invited to design and create a memorial mosaic piece to be installed at The Curve.

The workshops are FREE and open to all - both adults and children. They will take place on the following dates: Saturday 24th Feb / 3rd March / 10th March / 17th March from 2pm-5pm followed by a community meal. 

The first workshop will be a 'brain storming' session to explore design ideas for inclusion in the artwork. After amalgamating these into a cohesive image, participants will create the mosaic piece over the following weeks.
