See below for activities taking place on Tuesday 21st June.
Silk Painting Workshop
10:30 – 16:30, St Cuthberts Centre Church Hill, Crook, County Durham
Suitable for adults age 18+. Join Jack Drum’s team of staff, volunteers and freelance artists for a day of silk painting helping to create a community banner inspired by the themes of the festival. This meditative artform helps to reduce stress and aids wellbeing and is a particularly effective medium as it brings people together. You can join for the day or just come for a couple of hours. There will be free lunch provided as part of the activity.
Registration information: If you are interested in taking part, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with Silk Painting as the subject.

Suitable for young people age 10+. Our youth drumming band are opening their doors to welcome young people to attend a masterclass session with freelance percussionist Sam Ward-Hardy who will teach a new piece of music to participants. Numerous studies have shown that collective music-making has a positive impact on mental health supporting wellbeing, improving confidence whilst providing a safe place for young people to make new social connections. Refreshments will be provided as part of the session.
