Welcome to Creative Sparkworks!

We are a grassroots  community arts charity based since 2008 in north Lambeth, recently  moved into  great new premises at 157 of  the famous Lambeth Walk SE11 6EE. Our friendly tutors offer  free visual arts workshops in their specialisms of film & medial, mural painting, mosaic and ceramic, printmaking, creative stitchcraft,  for people from all walks of life. We work with young unemployed adults giving them skills training with well paid work placements, we work with the over 55s on our Valueing Older People courses; we welcome  vulnerable groups and young offenders to give them a place to live more, laugh more and learn. If you'd like to come along, you're more than welcome - we have a range of programs and workshops you can join ! You can also hire the premises for your own exhibition or event

 

Outreach Family Mosaic

Below is what some participants have had to say about us so far:

 “I have used Creative Sparkworks on many occasions, running mosaic making sessions at a range of community based events. They are kind, sensitive and very engaging; […] team always create a welcoming atmosphere and understand and adapt their approach based on what each situation needs. The finished mosaics are always of a high quality” Angus Kerr. Family Mosaic Housing Association Social Inclusion Officer South & East

 

 

Production Guild company affiliate FilmFixer director Andew Pavord says knitting professional support together with charities on the ground is essential to making sure Londoners benefit fully from local filming. “The right infrastructure is essential,” he says. “There’s a great deal of good will on the part of big budget filmmakers. A lot of people in the industry welcome the opportunity to give young people a hand up the ladder. But there has to be support on the ground, connecting young people in to these opportunities. “Creative Sparkworks is a brilliant example, working with young people every step of the way, often from homelessness, into skills training and, crucially, paid work.” 2015

 

 

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the film and media course. I have learnt a lot about the film industry, as well as gained some experience filming local events. All throughout the course the tutors and Sylvia have been very helpful and taught us about the ins and outs of the industry. This has included learning how to use Premiere Pro as well as editing on it; meeting experienced and important people like independent directors, assistant directors and film production companies.” C.O. film skills trainee 2014

 

 

 “Dear Sylvia, We would like to thank you for being a part of Interjunction and for helping us achieve so much! It has been amazing to see the project come together and create a great network of local organisations and young people. We are truly grateful to have been able to help so many young people find access to the work place.” Helen Spence, Kids City/Interjunction 2014

 

“The opportunities you have helped to provide young people throughout the borough have been fantastic, and it's been brilliant seeing how the volunteers have grown as a result of the experiences you've offered them I sincerely hope that you've found them helpful and enjoyable to have around.”

Becky Jones ‘HeadStart’ Assistant Programme Manager, The Challenge 2015 (is in the Sunday Times 100 Best Not For Profit Organisations To Work For 2014)

 “All the portfolios were highly creative and individual with work of a high standard. The young people were clearly very engaged with all aspects of the Arts Award and proud of what they achieved”  National Arts Award moderator
