Creative Activities to enjoy at home

If you’re looking for inspiration or distraction during lockdown, I’ve complied a list of some of my publicly available creative resources. Over the past 10+ months, I’ve been commissioned to create live and pre-recorded video workshops and resources exploring range of visual art mediums and themes. Some activities are linked with the work of a particular institution, such as a museum and their collection, whereas others look at broader subjects

The age range is suggested and generally the materials required to take part are easily accessible from home, or could be swapped out for other more available kit

It’s been a total learning curve for me to produce these during the lockdowns from home, but I hope they bring some creativity into people’s lives at a difficult time!
