In late 2019, we planned a series of hyperlocal workshops at Sittingbourne Library for our communities to ‘Try New Things’.
These were fun sessions with local creative people where you could learn a new skill or try your hand at something new – all for free.
Due to events beyond our control, in early 2020 we decide to take Try New Things online and create four videos.
In April 2020, artist Nicole Mollett showed us how to make puppets out of everyday things.
May saw Sadie Hennessy open the Lockdown Collage Club with old photos, magazines and cereal boxes.
In June Debbie Sowter helped us chill out with some Singing & Voice Therapy.
And in July 2020, our final Try New Things video saw Trynity Silk show us how to create a character in a Empathy & Performance workshop.
The videos are still available online and have currently (as of June 2021) been watched by over 200 people.
You can catch up anytime by watching our full Try New Things playlist on YouTube.
