Walk n Craft Group with ArtAtWork

MarketPlace commissioned Holly and Mel from Art At Work to facilitate art activities for the Walk n Craft group based in Mildenhall.

Location:

Mildenhall

Dates:

August 2020

Part of our Creative Conversations in Isolation programme.

The Walk n Craft group, define themselves as “a group of local women coming together for walking, crafting and a bit of banter over lunch”! Based in Mildenhall, Suffolk, they were used to meeting regularly, however following lockdown, the group were no longer able to meet in person.
Holly and Mel from Art At Work got in touch with the idea to set up meetings with the Walk n Craft group online, and create arts activities to do together. This would keep the group connected and also benefit the group in terms of health and well-being during a difficult period of isolation.

The creative activities included drawing variations of a shoe, continuous line drawing and drawing without looking at the object. They documented their meetings and creations on their Instagram account and they still meet regularly on Zoom.

The Walk n Craft group also took part in our #LetsTakeAWalk project with artist, Genevieve Rudd.
