Our First Workshops are returning to Brighton and St Leonards-On-Sea from 26th April 2022

First is a weekly creative workshop programme for parents/carers and babies 0-18 months.

 

“It’s creative, relaxing and full of good ideas to do at home. I honestly feel invigorated after the session and genuinely look forward to them each week.” Parent feedback 

 

Connection, storytelling and friendship are at the heart of Spun Glass Theatre’s First workshops. Every week, we invite you and your baby to explore different themes together through sensory, music, movement and creative activities, in an open and relaxing environment. 

 

First workshops create a space where parents AND babies feel cared for, restored, entertained and welcomed. We hope that First will become a place for you to connect with other families and share in this creative experience together.

 

The sessions are £8 and last for an hour and a half with refreshments provided.

We have some free spaces available for single parents, those under 25 and those on Universal Credit, please contact us to find out more.

FEEDBACK FROM PARENTS & CARERS

“Fun, therapeutic, welcoming, just wonderful”

“I absolutely love it! I feel like I’m stimulating my creative brain and having fun with my baby at the same time. Also, no matter how I come in I always leave more relaxed.”

 

“The highlight of my maternity leave, such a supportive, positive group!”

 

“So lovely to go to a baby group which is truly unique and entertaining….the artists have all been amazing and I leave feeling uplifted and positive.”

FIRST AUDIO STORIES FROM EARLY PARENTHOOD

In summer 2021, we invited performance artist Katie-anna Whiting to visit our First Workshops in Hastings & St Leonards, Brighton, Bedford and Winchester. Katie ran puppetry sessions and asked parents to share their memories and stories from the first 18 months of their baby's life. These stories have now been transformed into an audio series pieced together by theme. We hope you enjoy these short videos which many new parents can relate to!
