Creative groups in East Sutherland have collaborated to produce a new booklet showcasing artwork and writing from members.

Entitled Creative in Lockdown, the book is the outcome of a partnership between members of Art ‘n Blether, and online creative writing groups, run by Helmsdale based Connecting Communities.

The front cover of the new book which contains contributions from members of Connecting Communities’ art and writing groups.

It contains work from 36 contributors, much of which was done during lockdowns imposed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sarah Kerr of Connecting Communities said the creative enterprise brought “inspiration and light relief from the challenges faced during the Covid-19 pandemic”.

She added: “The various groups found enjoyment and companionship in our online sessions.

“Members have done so much incredible work since the start of the pandemic and this booklet is a celebration of that great work.

“Our artists and writers are all so modest about their efforts so we thought this was a great way to show off their talent and to offer our thanks.”

The booklets are priced at £10 per copy and can be purchased by contacting Connecting Communities on 01431 821655 or emailing [email protected]
