Four new FREE creative workshops will take place at The Hub of Grand Playfulness, based at the beautiful Age UK building in central Leeds. The creative workshops will focus on active involvement, positive intergenerational exchange, learning and playfulness.
The Hub of Grand Playfulness workshops will be 2.5 hours long, each with 30 minutes either side to relax and enjoy the space. The sessions will take place on the following dates:
Tuesday August 6th, 10:30am – 1pm
Wednesday August 7th, 1pm – 3:30pm
Friday August 9th, 1pm – 3:30pm
Tuesday August 13th, 10:30am – 1pm
Through the creative workshops Playbods artists Kim and Bryony will offer interactive, fun activities for the families to try together such as: storytelling and sculpture with recycled materials, den and landscape building and dance and movement, and each participant will be offered an equally valued, active role.
We aim to engage groups and individual grandparents with grandchildren (children aged from birth to 13 years) within the Woodhouse, Richmond Hill and Little London areas.
And so we would like to hear from you if you work with families in these areas and if you know of groups or individuals who you feel would benefit from being involved in the project.
For further information and enquiries please contact Kim Glassby: 07828261727 or Bryony Pritchard: 07725614731, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have been successful in our bid for a Leeds Inspired grant scheme! We are working in partnership with the brilliant Age UK Leeds to provide a series of city centre-based intergenerational creative workshops at the Age UK Community Hub during the Summer holidays. Grandparents and grandchildren, we look forward to playbodding with you soon in August! Updates coming soon!
