CREATIVE PLAYGROUND

When was the last time you were told to enjoy play time? As we grow up, we’re told in many different ways, that it’s time to get serious. Play for adults is often viewed as unproductive and childish, unless the play is competitive.

The Creative Playground believes that play brings joy.

Through play we stimulate the imagination which is an essential part of being human. We believe that engaging in a creative task with others can be refreshing and rejuvenating.

Creative Playground exists to help you to express your creative self, look at things differently, have fun, let go and get a little messy.

Our workshops are designed to give you the opportunity to explore play time again.

Creative Playground is passionate about sustainability and recycling, so the things you will make at our workshops are designed to bring pleasure in long-term use.

Creative Playground workshops are flexible and mobile, so we can come to you; host one at home, invite us to your local community centre, include us as part of a work conference, or as a welcome interval during a busy office day. 

“In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.” Friedrich Nietzsche workshops and feel free to contact me for more information.

Eat Your Words

Fill a piping bag with icing. Write a word or two or three. Set aside for editing, then eat them, crush them, or place them in a box and post them to a friend who has a sweet tooth and a love of the absurd  

In the spirit of sustainability and recycling join this workshop to design and print your unique piece of fabric to use to wrap a special gift. The fabric wrap becomes the additional gift you give. We will look at the bottom of a selection of found objects including plastic preformed food containers, ink them up and print them onto fabric. Playing with ideas from Furoshiki we will find the best way to wrap that gift.
