Arty Packs

Delivering arts and crafts directly to people’s doors during lockdown and beyond!

When coronavirus began East Durham Creates had to adjust many of our original programme plans including delivering face to face workshops with people in the community. Instead we worked together with East Durham Trust and their referrers to create a monthly arty pack which included all the materials as well as a worksheet to do arts and crafts activities. The packs are suitable for all ages so whether you’re doing it as a family or you’re an isolated individual you can sign up. Just email us at

Our first pack was inspired by our Above, Below, Beyond project which has seen young people from the area creating a series of new Miners Banners with artist Jamie Holman. The packs included everything to make a mini-miners banner in your own home.


Want to make your own? You can download the worksheet here. All you need to make your own is felt, scissors, sticky pads and a stick!

Pack 22

Our current pack is inspired by artist Grayson Perry who has recently been on prime time TV hosting his own Art Club (visit 4OD to watch the whole series) and encourages local people to try their hands at pottery!

Fancy signing up? Contact us on

Or you can download the worksheet here. All you need is some air drying clay to get started!

You can also check out all kinds of Grayson Perry themed Virtual Visits here.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
