We are Newhall Creative Collective. This book celebrates the end of a year-long arts project. Every Wednesday we come together, drink tea, eat cake, laugh, chat and create art. Together we have made a place to be creative and let our imagination flow. Where having a go is what counts, and trying new ways of being creative encouraged. Our group is designed for people that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel that confident to take part in the arts, as we have all felt that way! It is a place where people can learn new skills and make work they never thought they would be able to. Enjoy looking at our artworks in this book- we suggest itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best enjoyed with your feet up and a cup of tea! We hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we have enjoyed creating them.
