Artist Anna Ray will be delivering free art workshops in Ashford town centre as part of Create Festival this weekend.

From Saturday 14- Monday 16 July Anna will be hosting the drop-in workshops at Park Mall Shopping Centre.

Open to all ages, the workshops are based around the theme of ‘home’. Participants will be asked to share their ideas of what a ‘home’ is, and how we can go about making a place feel more homely.

Participants will be able to contribute to a large piece of artwork, choosing stamps and colours to decorate fabric.

The workshops are part of a wider project around ‘home’ that Anna is running with Ashford based women. The group are meeting on a weekly basis to create work, all of which will be exhibited in Ashford later this year.

Home was commissioned by People United, the Diocese of Canterbury and Ashford Borough Council in 2018, and funded by Arts Council England. The project aims to celebrate and bring together communities through the arts.

Saturday 14, Sunday 15 (10am-3pm) and Monday 16 July (10am-4:30pm)
