A NEW Creative Warm Space for Chesterfield

Cosy Crafts, a NEW Creative Warm Space for Chesterfield

Junction Arts, in partnership with Derbyshire County Council, is launching a new community warm space in Chesterfield that offers a warm place for people to sit, enjoy complimentary refreshments and get involved in craft activities.

The warm space is called Cosy Crafts and will run every Wednesday between 2 pm and 4 pm at West Studios on Sheffield Road. The project is for people of all ages and is part of the Warm Spaces network, a UK-wide initiative that aims to help people during the cost-of-living crisis.  Warm spaces are free places where people can relax, have a drink, access free Wifi, meet people and join in activities.  The aim is to combat loneliness and improve wellbeing while signposting people to practical help if they need it.

 

Cosy Crafts will have a different craft activity each week that visitors can get involved in, including Indian Block Printing, Card and Gift Bag workshop, Tissue Paper Flower Making and Glass Engraving.

Jane Wells, Project Coordinator at Junction Arts said: “Last year we visited a few local warm spaces, taking with us some simple craft activities.  We saw how important these spaces were to people and how the crafts helped people to interact with each other.  So, we decided to create our own warm space, with some added creativity.  But if people just want to come and enjoy a warm drink, that’s fine too, you don’t have to get crafty!

 

“The warm space is in the reception area at West Studios, it’s a lovely bright space, with colourful artwork on the walls, that we hope will inspire people. We’re looking forward to welcoming people of all ages in the next few weeks.”

 

The free warm space will start on February 7th and run every Wednesday from 2 pm until 4 pm, visitors can just turn up, there’s no need to book in advance.  For more information call or email Junction Arts: info@junctionarts.org or 01246 209 219.
