Welcome

Welcome to our new website. We are preparing a place to share the stories of our various projects. We are also going to encourage you to share your stories, particularly how creativity has affected your experience of COVID-19 and lockdown. Please come back soon.

Mission

To realise the creative potential and develop artistic appreciation in the people of Corby and Northamptonshire in order to encourage the development of the community through increase self-confidence, communication and expression, through the promotion of and participation in creative activities.

Current Projects

Bumps and Buggies

An exciting project working with pregnant women and new parents of children under 1.

We organised, with the group’s involvement, photography sessions both indoors and outdoors using the natural world and various other props to take stunning photographs.

The group used WhatsApp to communicate and this became a great way for them to maintain contact outside of the group’s sessions.

Patchwork Pals

A network of women in Corby and surroundings who have been shielding for most of this year, many of whom are isolated and experiencing challenges to their mental wellbeing. We are providing regular visits supplying fabrics, threads and ideas. Working individually, but to a common theme, they are creating beautiful collective textile works to put on show to the public.

We are grateful for support from:
