A Community Arts Project by Thread and Press CIC and funded through the Stronger Together Fund provided by the East Riding VCSE network. FREE online and in-person and creative workshops for residents of the East Riding of Yorkshire

What is the Wish You Were Here Project?

The Wish You Were Here project was created to help communities across the East Riding find safe and enjoyable ways to connect and ease social isolation. The project provides FREE workshops for residents across the county, to work on exciting, creative projects using a range of creative processes. Sessions will be run in-person* and online, or you can work on your own artwork independently at home to submit via email.

Our project missions are to:

• To create safe, supportive and creative environments and to allow participants to experience the positive benefits of creativity in supporting positive mental health

• To reduce feelings of isolation, disconnection or loneliness during the month ahead for those in more rural communities

• To create connections between communities in times of reduced opportunity for social interaction.

 

Sessions will run for all ages (adults and children) and will be offered at varied times throughout the day, including school holidays. We will scan and photograph artwork created in our sessions to turn into postcards and send to residents across the county (those working on the project independently can send these to us by email), You will also get the opportunity to write an anonymous message of support to be used on the back of one of our postcards. Anyone can sign up to receive a postcard and share in the wonderful support you can provide to each other. The final work will be compiled into a digital exhibition and narrative of the project, which we will share via social media. We hope that this project will encourage residents to use creativity as a way to find positive structure in the winter months and use safe and supportive sessions as a way to ease social isolation and build resilience. Thread and Press CIC are a not-for-profit arts organisation, established to serve the East Riding of Yorkshire and surrounding counties. We work to provide exciting, creative opportunities and encourage participation in the arts.

 

*In-person sessions will run subject only to appropriate government guidance at the time of the sessions

What Artwork do I need to create?

You can create any artwork that you feel would bring happiness, joy or support to another. This could be artwork of a place, a person, animal or story. It could be from observation or from the imagination.

 

We ask that artwork is created in the proportions of a postcard (rectangular) so that this can be easily transferred to postcard format. You can use any medium of your choice! Paint, pencil, textiles, print... or you could make a sculpture and send us a photograph!

 

We don’t need to keep final artwork although we do need a good quality photograph or scan (if you are attending one of our free sessions, we can photograph this in the session) Our sessions will address different themes like landscapes, portraits, narrative... but you are free to create artwork to any positive theme of your choice (please, no politics or controversial topics - we want to keep this about support and happiness). Please make sure all artwork is your own and from your own sources or sources with permission.

For family sessions, one family count as one booking. We request that you provide the ages of all participants for family sessions to enable us to provide age-appropriate resources.  If you submit more than one booking form for a household, we can add you to a waiting list and if places don't fill prior to the session we can offer you a place. We prioritise those who have not attended any other session, then by the number of sessions attended and then we work through the list in order of first forms received. 

Online classes will require access to an internet connection and Zoom. We will provide a Zoom code to all participants prior to the course start date. We cannot repeat any sessions in the event of a failed internet connection or issues beyond the control of Thread and Press CIC. 

In-person sessions will only run subject to guidance at the time of the session. We will always notify you within 24 hours of the start date of a course if the course cannot run.
