Havering Adult College, Havering Road, Collier Row, wants to welcome guests from Saturday, May 11, to Sunday, May 19 for the festival where they can try their hands at different free creative free workshops.

From photography and plant-pot making, to film production and flower arranging, there are plenty of activities to try.

Curriculum development manager Vedia Mustafa said: “We are excited to be involved in Get Creative for the third year running and by offering free workshops we are able to encourage people to get involved in creative arts.

“Taking part in a creative arts session can be beneficial in many ways – helps to develop new skills and interests, nurtures relationships with other like-minded people, encourages community involvement and for some, can tackle some of the issues around social isolation.”
