Greenfield Arts have been continuing their arts programme and were delighted to venture online to continue their summer season offer with a free family holiday workshop.  

Artist Jilly Johnston inspired all of the family to get involved, creating creatures, characters and artwork from materials that could be found around the home and garden.  Families were able to get creative with the help of a guided online video workshop and accompanying creative packs.  

The workshop formed part of their Storymakers activity and gave participants the chance to spend creative time with each other and continue to be part of the Greenfield Arts Community.   Families were given details and support on how to use the free Greenfield Arts Storymakers App, created by young people during a previous GAMP funded project through Greenfield Arts.  Using the app they were able to write their own stories and include the characters they had made in a range of fantastical settings.

It was lovely to be able to see the results and share the creations that have been made.   “We enjoyed the family video and enjoyed finding our way around the app” said one participant.   Thank you to all who were able to take part.
