We are so exited to say that artFix Woolwich is now open for business!
It’s been an amazing week for artFix Woolwich following our official opening. For the past seven days we have been buzzing with activity and already have some local regulars. We have met a lot of new people from the local community, engaging people with coffee, co-working space and art, of course.
Not only do we serve a delicious array of food and drink, we give visitors the opportunity to discover much more over three floors of activity. We all love Diana Savostaite’s paintings which have been decorating our first-floor space in our opening exhibition! Inspired by the surrounding environment, people and inner emotions, Diana aims to be as honest as possible when she creates. It was a great experience for us to cooperate with a local fine artist, the first of many we hope.
Art of Mindfulness Workshops supported by Cass Art:
Aside from exhibitions, we held our first of three Art of Mindfulness taster classes in our space on Tuesday! With special thanks to Cass Art for the materials, we successfully provided a fun and engaging workshop for students and young people. These classes, led by local art therapist Simon Woodward, aim to combine mindfulness art practice and guided meditation that participants can replicate in their own time. Each taster class is aimed at a different age group – the next will be tailored to Working Age Adults. We can’t wait!
On Wednesday evening we had our first film screening in our space — Alfred Hitchcock’s classic ‘The Lady Vanishes’. As one of Hitchcock’s last British films before moving to Hollywood, we all enjoyed this outstanding and delightful comedy thriller. Join us each week for more movies and cake!
Even though we have only been open for a week, the interest and buzz for artFix in the local community is beating our expectations. From locals who came to our space for coffee and a chat, local artists interested in exhibitions and workshop possibilities, to those who participated in our events so far – we appreciate everyone for being a part of artFix. We even had a visit from Greenwich Council and met with councillor Sizwe James to discuss the annual Tall Ships Festival coming up this Easter!
After just one week, we feel so welcomed in Woolwich already and only have you to thank. Your participation and support keeps on encouraging us to develop even more events and classes for the local community.
You’re always welcome to pop in and join us whenever you wish, and we’re excited to see what’s next for artFix Woolwich!
