Community Fun Day
T Shirt Screen Printing
Following a workshop with Skate Buddies to design some graphic prints, David Springer and Jayne Hayward ran an incredible screenprinting workshop using those designs. Participants were welcome to come and try out screenprinting, while learning and engaging with the local roller skating community.
Sharonjit from Designs Loading created some lovely sticker designs to celebrate the local skating community. We then invited MAC attendees to join us in colouring them in and share with others to share the Skate Buddies story.
Film Screening and Q&A
Skate Buddies performed a routine choreographed by Empress Gibbs, the founder of Skate Buddies. The piece embodies her personal journey with mental health and the positive impact that skating and skating community has had on her life.
Roller Skating Taster Sessions
In collaboration with Skate Buddies, we hosted three taster session workshops at Ladywood Methodist Church.
With skates and protective gear from Skate Hut, Skate Buddies introduced attendees to skating by teaching safety and confidence on wheels.
It was a fun and relaxed day, and we can't wait to welcome more people to the skating community.
