Get creative with online activities
A Space To Be is an opportunity to have a bit of quality ‘me’ time, encouraging you to express yourself through art or writing.
The inspiration comes from the collection at Stevenage Museum. You don’t have to be ‘good at art’ to have a go, everyone is welcome.
There are a number of online activities from North Herts Museum which you can do on your own, at your own pace.
If you want to find out more, email, email@example.com or call or text Jo on 07746 578 292.
