Art, Make & Create.

Fridays at The Pearl Exchange are an opportunity to get hands on and creative with new faces. Think of it as an art foundation course, without the £9000 fee as we turn the Pitch and Putt building into a sanctuary of all things visual and textured. Come and tend to your inner artist and creator. Spending time being creative with others will be a great way to reintegrate or discover a new interest after a long period of isolation.

These classes and sessions are open to anyone, no matter what experience or level of interest. Whether you consider yourself to be creative or not, or whether you want to simply hang out for the afternoon, relax and peacefully learn how to make pottery or jewellery or even a new pair of trousers.

It has been proven that engaging in creative activities from painting to drawing to fixing to sewing to printmaking is beneficial to your mental health and well-being. Research shows people experience more positive moods, such as joy, happiness and optimism when taking part in the arts.
