Wivenhoe Creatives

Saturday 13th

Jubilee Garden

Sustainability, the environment, recycling, nature – these are all things in which any self-respecting creative person hanging about in North Essex might be interested. After all, we get our inspiration from the things around us. And what’s around us? Well, plenty of distinctively East Anglian countryside for a start, along with fauna, flora and many, many birds and bugs. Plus we need to be interested in sustainability to survive as communities – permaculture is very now for all thinking and environmentally aware architects.

And let’s not forget how recycling gives us fun ways of doing design on a budget.

So Wivenhoe Creatives is pitching in to help with Wild About Wivenhoe, a series of events taking place between the 5th and the 14th May 2017, culminating in the Wivenhoe Goes Wild family festival on the 13th May 12-6pm on King George V Playing Field, Wivenhoe (see planned events below).

Wivenhoe Creatives Director Deborah Talbot is heading up the PR (with Essex Uni student Jo Hetzel getting some work experience on social media), and we’re having an area of the Festival – the Jubilee Garden – to do creative stuff.

We’re going to be offering henna tattooing, face painting, art, poetry and clay sessions, for children and adults. There’s room for plenty more, so if you’ve got an idea, whether it’s an activity or some crafts you want to show off, get in touch with us. We hope to have music, and maybe even food.

We’ll also have a stall with leaflets so if you are offering any creative classes or just want to promote your business, show up on the day with your information cards. Hang around and talk with folk to let them know what you are doing.

Here’s the line up for the Wivenhoe Creatives Wivenhoe Goes Wild area on the 13th May.
