Creative Essex - Virtual Event
The Explore Essex team are pleased to bring you Creative Essex – a month-long celebration of all things creative from ‘make it at home’ to ‘meet the makers’ (some of whom would have been at our Cressing Art & Craft Fair that was due to take place later this month). We’ll even have a virtual gallery featuring some of the very best work from Essex artists.
Each week we will be releasing different activities, information and opportunities for you to get involved in for both adults and children alike. These are also all on our website for you to access at any time.

Our friends at Adult Community Learning have just launched a wide variety of courses and short tutorials online so that you can 'Keep Learning' from the safety of your home. Activities include: an Italian lesson, arts & crafts, book club, British Sign Language basics, and how to create French braids. Anything that helps us maintain a healthy routine right now is beneficial, helping us stay active, mentally and physically, so why not give them a go?

Finally we are excited to share 'Essex Summer of Art Trails Go Virtual'. Our very own virtual gallery pages will showcase some brilliant artists from across our great county.
View beautiful, thought-inspiring artwork from your sofa!
