About the workshop
In this relaxed messy play day, create your own mixed media artwork on canvas that you can display in your home, or give as a gift. We will provide a wide variety of 2D and 3D materials in both vintage and modern styles for you to have fun and get creative. Cutting, sticking, drawing, painting, fabric, magazines, sequins, glitter… there will be plenty to choose from!
Go at your own pace and make something wonderful. Saturday December 3rd is International Day of People with Disabilities, and this workshop is a chance to celebrate and come together in a creative environment. Make something inspired by this important international day, or make something that’s personal to you.

About Lore Green
Hi, my name is Lore Green and I’m a crafter, teacher and creative from Peterborough. I enjoy experimenting with many crafts, such as sewing, papercrafting, upcycling and mixed media. I often blend many crafts, techniques, materials and mediums together to create something beautiful, often with texture. I really enjoy blending new and vintage elements together to create something totally unique. As a bookworm, I’m drawn to using old books, pages and texts in my work. I also have a disability and I’m committed to making creativity accessible to all.
About International Day of People with Disabilities
International Day of People with Disability takes place on 3rd December 2022 and is about:
● Celebration – to recognize and value the diversity of our global community, and to cherish the role that we all play, whatever our level of ability.
● Learning – to understand and learn from the experiences of people living with a disability;
● It is a day for optimism – to look towards the future and the creation of a world where a person is not characterised by their disabilities, but by their abilities;
● Action – where all people, organisations, agencies and charities not only show their support for International Day of People with Disabilities, but take on a commitment to create a world characterised by equal human rights.
