Crooked Thicket Creation Space

The Crooked Thicket is the regeneration of a beautifully wild and underused space. We have a dream to transform this rural space into a fully functional creation space for outdoor artists, therapists and educators to develop their practice, whilst offering a service to those in need. Behind the project are three people equally dedicated to making wonderful things happen in the great outdoors for the local and wider community. That’s why we are assembling a network of artists, therapists and educators who share our passion for making work outdoors.

We are absolute believers in the benefits of spending time outdoors, being active, playing, creating works of art and interacting with nature.

The funding will allow us to get a marquee and build eco toilets. These facilities will allow us to open with a rehearsal space and function room to run events and hold activities by all kinds of outdoor artists, therapists and educators. It will essentially kick start the opening of our creation space.

We are already running a number of community functions off our site before a grand opening day later in the summer, so for more information please see www.thecrookedthicket.co.uk or find out more about www.hotchpotchperformance.co.uk to keep up to date with what we have coming this year that includes the following:

Therapist support days with Anna wheeler: http://www.thecrookedthicket.co.uk/therapist-support-days/

Camborne Circus Jams; a weekly circus club and creation space open to everyone of all levels to come to network and share.
