What’s going on?
Marking Places is our creative project funded by the Big Lottery Awards For All fund. We are working with the community to create some commemorative markers for heritage sites in Burgess Park. Our Winter/Spring workshops will take place at Waterside Care Home.
The Mayor Of London’s Get Moving programme encouraged fresh approaches to physical, mental and creative activity for older Londoners. Art in the Park’s Community Green gardening and food project, in partnership with Southwark Council and based in Burgess Park community garden, was one of only 16 projects in London to receive funding. Under the Community Green banner, and thanks to a small grant from Notting Hill Housing, we also ran Intergenerational Summer Workshops for people to design, decorate and plant containers for their balconies and gardens.
Place to Remember was our heritage project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund exploring the social and architectural history of four local buildings in Walworth and Camberwell. We were delighted to have so many local people and organisations involved, and that ASC gallery was able to host our final exhibition.
Garden Planters with Rose Court Care Home
We have been working in the garden with residents of Anchor’s Rose Court Care Home and members of Age Concern Lewisham and Southwark’s Yalding Road Healthy Living Centre, thanks to a small grant from United St Saviour’s.
We run classes for adults and children at the studio. Come and have some fun with clay! Enjoy clay painting and wheel throwing, ceramics and ceramic painting. We are now offering kiln firings and other services to ceramicists without their own kiln of studio. Firings start from £40 – please get in touch with Nam Tran for more details for classes and firings.
Thank you to The Bigger Picture!
The Bigger Picture at EDT Film Club has funded the purchase of a pottery wheel for the use of local people in Southwark and Lambeth. To have a second wheel has allowed us to work with twice the number of people at each session and events. Thank you all at the Bigger Picture EDT Film Club!
We have many new art courses and workshops running throughout the year. Life drawing, wood carving, mosaics, pewter and more. See here for more details. Some concessions are available.
