Space to explore our creativity alongside others as we seek to draw closer to God

The Community of Hopeweavers values creativity as part of our Rule of Life.  
Over many years we have offered creative opportunities at conferences, quiet days and in other settings, and together have sought to encourage each other. 
ArtSchool@hopeweavers is offered to all who would like to explore and
 learn more about creativity, within the context of stillness and silence.
ArtSchool@hopeweavers is offered during the summer of 2019 on a ten week basis in two blocks of five weeks.  Join us as we explore Pilgrimage.

All are welcome regardless of any previous experience of creativity. Sessions are led by Members of the Community of Hopeweavers and prayerfully held within the context of our Daily Office.  This summer, sessions are available on Wednesday evenings and Thursday mornings which will both be concerned with the same themes each week and on occasional Saturdays, which will include more of a teaching element. All sessions will be held in West End, Southampton.

We ask for a minimum donation of £5 per session with £10 on Saturdays which covers our insurance, materials, heating, lighting and refreshments.

If you would like to book a place visit 
our Eventbrite page or contact us with any queries.
