Creating Happiness exhibition & workshops

15th November 2016

Cath Ford and her Creative Support group are launching an exhibition of 'happy art' and a series of workshops in Blackburn.


Come along to BB1 for Life from Monday 28th November for exhibition of art created by people using the services of Creative Support Blackburn Social Inclusion Project working with local artist Cath Ford. The exhibition and workshops celebrate the joy of making things together. The group is inviting members of the public to come and see the exhibition and take part in activities that they have enjoyed over the last year.
