Other News from Creative Croydon

Our second pop up Creative Café went delightfully
On 30th December 2016 we held our second Creative Croydon pop up Creative Café. The event was kindly hosted by Studio Upstairs in the town centre. Over 30 people came along and took part in creative mindfulness and singing workshops, as well as an open art session. There was a lovely warm buzz and people hung around chatting in the afterglow, a bright spot at a time of year that can bring mixed emotions. We were joined by artist Liz Watkins who painted as the cafe took place! So watch this space for more pop up Creative Cafes in 2017!
