Working in new ways!

COVID-19 has made us more creative! See what is on offer via online sources below!

Join in!

Fancy having a piece of your art on the walls of our art gallery? Now's your chance!

Beach Creative & Toast miss sharing art with you, so we want to bring the gallery to YOU!

We will be releasing 2 poems. One is to raise awareness for Ocean Plastics Pollution & the other is to celebrate the amazing animals we share our world with!

We invite YOU to draw or paint a colourful picture, inspired by the poems and send it to us to display!

As our doors are close, we will be making a video of your work, along with the poems for all to enjoy from the comfort of their homes!

Post your art through the door to:

AnimalsRAmazing Art, Beach Creative, Beach House, Beach Street, Herne Bay CT65PT

Make sure your name, age [optional] is on the front of your artwork so it can be seen in the video.

Try not to fold you work - children and adults welcome!

MAP : creative writing workshop via ZOOM

09.03.21 - 20.04.21* (Tuesdays, 19.00 - 21.00)

It's not a question of equipment, of sat nav V paper. They could fail, blip, split. It's about history, decisions, accidents; those unexpected turns that took us away from/ brought us to ... HERE. Whilst enjoying
cartographers art, MAP will investigate names & symbols to find their significance; the changed & the lost; and plot/map our own journeys - even maybe discovering what we hoped for.

Who for?

novice or experienced writers of all disciplines wishing to begin, improve or experiment. We are a
friendly, relaxed and safe group who are very welcoming towards new members.

cost: £95 (non-refundable) payable in advance of first session. NB: If a meeting is missed, you will be sent
our in-session notes, image or textual prompts and Offline Task choices.

Easy like a Sunday Story..

While the doors of TOAST have sadly been closed, Sherry has been being creative with her time. 


In a bid to find some pleasant escapism from the pandemic, Sherry is writing a short story each week, which she performs on You Tube every Sunday. The nature of the ‘easiness’ of the stories aptly lends its name to the series; 'Easy Like a Sunday Story’. There have been six episodes so far, with a new one tomorrow.


Or if you prefer, the stories are repeated every Tuesday after the 7pm news on CabinFM and again on Sunday mornings at 8am.  The ‘Cabin Stories’ are a few weeks behind, tomorrow’s will be Episode 2.


You can catch up here:

Coastal Creative: Take Off

Currently being delivered via Zoom

Fortnightly on Tuesday's from 2pm-4pm

A free course aimed at those who face mental health difficulties and isolation- to attend please contact

About Take Off:

Take Off provides ready-made social networks and also provide other peer support services as needed. When a need is identified, we will endeavour to design, develop and deliver a service to fill that void. We have a large group of sessional workers spread across East Kent. We believe peer support is a significant part of our recovery process and therefore has an economic value.
