Curious Minds at Woodbridge

An arts and heritage programme designed to support wellbeing through creative and mindful activities. Curious Minds offers participants the chance to enjoy exploring a variety of art forms whilst developing creative skills and tools to support mental wellbeing.

Following our highly successful programme in Felixstowe we are delighted to now offer a new programme at Woodbridge library with professional artists Lily Hammond and Michelle Brace. Participants will explore aspects of the collections from the Food Museum in Stowmarket as chosen by Lily and Michelle and curated by Katherine Bridges from the Food Museum. Museum objects will be explored to stimulate stories and conversations and creative skills will be developed in illustration and mixed media. No creative experience is necessary as these workshops are an opportunity to connect, learn, develop new skills and promote overall wellbeing.

Our first session, 12th December 2023, 10:00 am to 12 noon is a free taster so you can come and find out more about the programme. Refreshments provided! Weekly sessions starting Tuesday, 9th January 2024.

Curious Minds is a friendly, accessible and safe space to come and explore creativity with professional artists and discover interesting heritage facts that will inspire your imagination.
