Creative Futures Midlands was set up to work with disadvantaged individuals to improve their mental health, well-being and life circumstances through teaching craft and life skills and the creation of community gardens. We have a great deal of experience spanning over 10 years of work in the local community with good local knowledge and connections in the field including council members, diocese of Leicester, teachers and educators and other arts organizations. We are most proud of a project building outdoor furniture in New Parks where we built an allotment, and helped the participants grow vegetables and ran healthy eating projects. Creative Futures Midlands has completed many hundreds of workshops with large numbers of participants of all ages, but has also worked one-on-one with a young adult who was on community service and mentored him over a year as an apprentice and together with him built various public sculptures around Leicester.
Liam Hadjipetrou is a trained teacher with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture, working mainly with wood but also with stone, willow, clay and wool.
I combine my teaching and fine art skills to deliver curriculum led workshops with children and adults of all ages, and I can tailor my workshops to meet your needs.
“Liam works brilliantly with children of all age groups and abilities.
Project ideas are brought to life with Liam’s careful planning and budgeting.”
