Creative Writing Workshops with Emma Beynon

Our online, creative writing group met every Wednesday to discuss a collection of poems. The course was taught by Emma Beynon, a local writer with a passion for teaching.

The online group shared their thoughts and feelings about the poems, before creating their own pieces of creative prose.

Over eight weeks, the group developed their writing skills, and have since created a new book, which features their favourite pieces of work.

The Colour Within Workshops were hosted by our artist, Emily Meredith and in partnership with Cheshire West Voluntary Action. Emily has a passion for painting and takes inspiration from nature. She shared her best techniques on painting and how to portray your mood in art. 

The relaxing class showed members how to use new painting techniques, before giving everyone time and space to create their own paintings to reflect their emotion.

Illustrator, Rachael Shone, hosted a series of workshops, which gave participants the skills to interpret emotion and movement into their work.

 

Each class focused on a different theme, including music, food, and poetry. Within the music workshop, the group listened to different genres of classical music, before freely interpreting the beats onto paper.

The medium was was optional, often what was easier for the participant and materials they had to hand. The laid-back style allowed for creative thought and expression.

SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY IN CHESTER

Thanks to sponsorship from The Westminster Foundation, The Allen Lane Foundation and CAF Tourle Foundation Fund, we are able to begin our new social prescribing project, providing creative and wellbeing courses for perinatal mums in Cheshire West and Chester. 

Early 2020, we began working with Cheshire and Wirral PartnershipNHS FoundationTrust's Starting Well Service to bring our 'Creativity to Wellness' courses into local Children's Centres in Cheshire. We feel it is important to have a welcoming support service in a safe, friendly and non-threatening environment for new mums who are at risk of perinatal depression.

Radiate Arts are proud to be able to deliver this service to our local communities.

Due to current social distancing measures, the start date for our course has been delayed and we will be resuming this as soon as possible, starting at Kingsway and Upton Children's Centre, Chester. More details on these opening dates will be available as soon as we know.
