CREATE Kids Club

Create The Vibe Container, Mary Street, Thames

Sundays, 1pm - 3pm


CREATE is a free weekly arts and craft club for kids of all ages, an opportunity for kids in our community to get together and have some time to hang out and create.

 

The CREATE programme was started by two local Thames mums - Justina Lardner-Burke and Stephanie Rowe who have a background in graphic design and arts respectively. 

 

"We both saw there was a bit of a gap for children in our community to come and do something creative," says Justina. She currently makes dolls that she sells at the local market and talks to many mothers in our community who are keen to have their kids get out and do some art and crafts. 

 

The pair plan to see how the club goes before implementing any changes. They saw an opportunity, grabbed it, and hope to see something bigger come of it. Local second-hand shops have been supporting the pair by donating old books and other materials that can be used in arts and crafts projects.

 

Every Sunday from 1pm-3pm at the Create The Vibe container on Mary Street, Thames.
