Creatives with Kids is an opportunity for creative folk to come together, share ideas and make connections - with the kids in tow!

About this event

Creatives with Kids is an opportunity for creative folk to come together, share ideas and make connections. Whether you’re looking for a collaborator, are keen to learn and share skills, or want to discuss the highs and lows of sharing your creative life with kids, this is for you!

This event will be delivered in two parts. For the first hour, we encourage the wee ones join us for some crafting (also designed for grown ups!), then from 10:00am, we'll host virtual networking, designed for parents to connect and chat!

09.00 : welcome, grab your supplies + get comfortable!

09.10 : make your own origami plant pot, with Hannah Ayre

10.00 : break

10.10 : (not-so-speedy) speed networking

10.45 : community shout outs + CE news

10.55 : thank you, + farewell!

Please feel comfortable dipping in and out throughout the event. We also welcome creatives who work with children or have an interest in connecting with parents working in the creative industries!

Our Guest

We'll be joined by Hannah Ayre for the first part of Creatives with Kids! Hannah is a participatory artist and producer with over twenty years experience of designing and delivering socially engaged projects and events. She works for numerous arts and heritage clients throughout the UK and occasionally internationally. Hannah's artwork ranges from small-scale crafts to large-scale outdoor sculpture and installations.

What you’ll need to make origami plant pots (and more!)...

- 2 sheets of A4 paper (210 x 297mm)

- 2 sheets of square paper (A4 size, cut down to a square).

From Hannah: "Coloured paper is cheerful, or you can recycle some old office paper, or a bill. You could use a magazine, or wrapping paper. "
