Bring your Christmas cards along and create a selection of useful items that can be put safely away and used next Christmas! Save yourselves some pounds as well as the planet with some recycling projects. Some ideas have been posted to this event page but if you have any ideas then please feel free to share.

Sessions are free but if you can make a donation then please drop one in the small blue tin as you leave. No donation is too small and will be used to fund the Bee Creative sessions and support the valuable services that Middle Street provide for our community.

Monday 6th January

Middle Street Resource Centre

7:00pm – 8:30pm

Please indicate your intention to attend on the event page. 12 SPACES AVAILABLE on a first come first served basis. There will be a SIGN-IN SHEET AT RECEPTION specifically for BEE CREATIVE. Apologies if you do not manage to get a space this week.

‘Bee Creative’ is a community based project that seeks to promote creativity as part of Creative Beeston. Our aim is to use recycled and donated materials wherever we can. The team of creatives that deliver the workshops are experienced and patient and offer a range of skills so they can bring you a variety of new things to learn.

The merits of art and crafts on mental well-being have been studied and the work of the ‘Mental Health Foundation’ found substantial evidence that patients who are suffering with depression or anxiety found creative pursuits more successful in helping their symptoms than medical alternatives.
