As a part of the Reaching Communities Programme, young people who complete our courses and return feedback will be entered into a prize draw.
We are pleased to share that we are introducing a brand-new programme of Wellbeing Calligraphy for young people as a part of the Reaching Communities programme, Courses will be delivered virtually via ZOOM, and are facilitated by our partner organisation, Youth Resilience UK.
This will take the form of a three-week Calligraphy course which will encourage young people to learn basic skills around calligraphy. As a part of the group, they will have the opportunity to learn how to create name tags and place cards.
The hope is that this group will encourage young people to develop new skills and interests – benefitting their wellbeing during an otherwise difficult and challenging period of time.
Please Note: As a part of our Basic Calligraphy Course participants will be sent a free Calligraphy Kit at no charge to them. You can view the basic Calligraphy Kit here.
As a part of any of our Advanced sessions, participants will be sent free resources to enable them to complete the advanced activities we will be doing in these sessions. You can find some examples of what we may do in these sessions in the gallery below.
Mid Kent Mind will also be offering Advanced Calligraphy Courses for Young People who have previously attended our basic Calligraphy Courses.
These courses will build on the skills which young people have had the opportunity to develop in our introductory session – allowing them to further develop their capabilities. Attendees to our Advanced Session will receive FREE resources for making Cards, Inspiration Plaques and Banners.
We will also be hosting stand alone Valentines and Easter sessions for young people who have attended our basic Calligraphy Session and feel more confident trying new things.
