Getting creative with #CreWECREATE
We had a great day running our free family workshops for Crewe Create in Lyceum Square as part of a series of events arranged in partnership with the Crewe Cultural Forum. Throughout August, activities are taking place to encourage creativity, expression and community connection.
Based on our sell-out production about Crewe Heroine, Ada Nield Chew, our creative writing and drama workshop was an immersive experience for participants to discover more about Ada and her place in history.
Guided by Mr Taylor the Tailor, we explored what life was like in our interactive space designed to have the look, feel and sound of a clothes factory workshop in 1894.
Participants had the opportunity to create their own Victorian character, to write and to perform their own story or letter alongside the free activity pack.
We even managed a bit of time to get creative ourselves with the Express Yourself! Chalkboards workshop run by local artists David & Louise Jewkes.
All in all, we've had a fab day filled with lots of laughter, we've reconnected with friends and met new people from all walks of life, coming together as a community to engage in the arts and be creative. A great way to spend a sunny Saturday!
