Oswestry charity Qube’s Get Creative At Home project has been running throughout the pandemic and has more than 50 different activities, from crochet projects to painting with coffee.

Many of the ideas have also been generated through Qube’s partnership with Shropshire Council and Taking Part which has been providing resources for people who would ordinarily access day services in Shropshire.

Qube arts officer Jim Creed said: “We are really proud of the resources we have pulled together and the feedback we are receiving is just wonderful.

"I think what is particularly great is that we are able to share these resources with the wider public and that many of the activities can be done with things that many of us already have in the house.”

All of the activities and templates are available at www.qube-oca.org.uk.
