Embroidery by The Creative Connections Group Led By Chris Hogben from Hoop Doggy Dog.

The Creative Connections Group, part of Thriving Communities Trafford, meeting on Tuesday Mornings 10.30-12.30 – offering  creative workshops in six week blocks focussing on wellbeing and connecting with others in a relaxed and welcoming setting. Good friendships are developed and participants come away inspired to develop their skills further and inspired to develop other skills.

For the past 12 weeks (6 weeks was just not long enough!) Chris Hogben has been leading  The Creative Connection Sessions encouraging participants to create mindful embroidery and More! It was a time of being part of an active community working with a common aim for all to create something beautiful during the sessions.

All the work on display has been created during the group or at home in between sessions. Participants have collaborated, tried new things, expressed themselves and have created some amazing work and having so much fun doing it!!
