Event description
Join the Creative Guild for a day-long celebration of our new space, The Workshop in Orchard Square

About this Event

To celebrate the move into our new permanent home in Orchard Square we’re holding a day long launch party and we want you to come along and let-loose with the great and the good of Sheffield’s creative community.

Enjoy a day of workshops for both children and adults, film screenings, performances, food, drink and the opportunity to take a peek at our new space and the work being produced by our fantastic members. This includes our beautiful new mural, produced by illustrator Molly Jones.

From 11am - 1pm, Beverley Ward will run a writing workshops for families:

Inventing stories and writing poems together is a great way for parents to connect with children on a different level and to enjoy being creative and having fun alongside each other. Write together or separately with prompts and materials provided by experienced facilitator and author, Beverley Ward.

If you'd like to book a place for Beverley's workshop, let her know what numbers she can expect by doing s here: https://www.beverleywrites.com/adult-workshops/family-writing-workshop

1pm - 2pm, let's eat lunch!

Sandwiches. Tea. Coffee. Cake. Probably a grape.

2pm - 4pm, artist Shaun Duke will lead an afternoon drawing session

A relaxed drop-in drawing session, creating for creativity's sake. Experiment with fun techniques to loosen up your drawings, sharpen your observation skills, and perhaps even surprise yourself!

All levels welcome, materials provided.

4pm - 6pm, screenings of Guild members' films

A selection of shorts made by or featuring members of the Sheffield Creative Guild, encompassing documentary, animation and beyond.

6pm - 8pm, musical performances

Shelley Byron and the Poison Sleep

Take the hand of the person you love, and lead them for a starlit stroll.

Somewhere in that dreamy twilight hour, when the song birds first begin to stir, you will turn to look into that person’s eyes; you want to whisper to them all of your secrets.

Except the person has gone. They were only a phantom, a trick of the moonlight and your lonely heart.

This is the music of Shelley Byron.

Rosey PM

Pyjama jazz singer song writer Rosey PM plays live as a four piece band performing songs about boys and girls and goo with a witty effervescence. Rosey and the band trip over jazz pop beats and flirt with young romance.

Listen to Rosey PM's dreamy new single, Soft Focus:

This is a drop-in event, entirely free to anyone who cares to come along.

But please do book a place to give us an idea of how much cake we need to have on offer (unless you have already booked a place on Beverley's workshop).
