 Over the past weeks of our wonderful teaching team have put together activities and exercises to keep you active during lockdown. Why not make a sculptural bird sculpture, learn a self-help massage to relieve stress, or embroider a photograph to send to a friend.

Video of students continuing to meet during Lockdown

This video is Community Outreach class who originally meet for weekly art classes at Birkbeck Universary. During Lockdown, they continued to meet online and here is them talking about their experience of keeping creative during Lockdown. The video was put together and submitted to Newham Unlocked Broadcasts, who are an arts organisation, who asked Newham residents to submit videos of creative activities during Lockdown. They then collated them and broadcast them throughout this period. Our video is still being broadcast and is available to see here –
