First is a 5 week creative workshop programme for parents/carers and babies 0-18 months.

It will run MONDAY 27th September – 18th October 2021 at The Place Bedford.

Our workshops are designed to support parents during the first year of parenthood – we strive to create somewhere welcoming, where you will feel cared for and restored, as well as providing a range of fun activities for you and your baby.

First is a chance to meet other parents in a Covid safe environment, a calm and welcoming space for some much needed connection, storytelling and friendship. The programme features workshops from visiting artists from a range of art forms, alongside regular baby sensory and creative activities.

The sessions are £8 and last for an hour and a half with refreshments provided.
