Art Kits

During the first lockdown of 2020, Studio Meraki are supported their local community with the creation and distribution of Art Kits to families who were finding life particularly difficult to navigate during the Covid-19 pandemic. Working with local organisations delivering essential support, we sent kits out to 200 families, every week for 20 weeks. Focusing on simple activities, the kits were designed by local artists to inspire creativity, develop skills, and provide a welcome distraction. This project was made possible thanks to the Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund.

Below are the videos and instructions from the 20 weeks, if you fancy a go from home! 

With special thanks to our team of volunteers from In Bristol Studio who are making this possible, and our generous donors so far- your contributions make the world of difference!
