Creative Wellbeing provides opportunities for you to explore your creative potential. Learn a new skill, connect with people, explore your creativity and try something different.

Join us and enjoy a diverse range of creative subjects from drawing to stagecraft, felting to pot glazing, sound recording to sculpture and much, much more.

Established January 2013, Creative Wellbeing is an independent, non-profit social enterprise which serves local communities by delivering free activities which enhance personal wellbeing through creativity.

We currently provide free activities at Carlisle train station on Thursdays (10am-2.30pm) and Fridays (10am-12.30am). Anyone aged 16+ who would like to enhance their wellbeing is more than welcome to come along. Bring a friend too!

Last year, we also delivered over 60 activities in Maryport, Cockermouth, Whitehaven & Cleator Moor and we’re hoping to resume provision in West Cumbria soon.

Who’s behind Creative Wellbeing?

Creative Wellbeing was founded January 2013 by Rebecca Mellor, a local interdisciplinary artist with extensive experience working within educational, healthcare and creative establishments. She is supported by her fellow director, Paul Batey.

With the desire to provide valuable community projects which network and empower people, we recognise individual skill-sets and personal contribution to the place in which we live. The project is run on sound ethical business principles and practices with the core values of co-operation, innovation and inclusion.
