As we adjust to lockdown living and all the juggling acts that come with it, it’s safe to say that most of us are pretty daunted by the weeks ahead. While in isolation, many of us have started seeking creative outlets to keep our hands busy and minds quiet. Whether it’s drawing, cooking, practicing your craft or simply taking a break from it all, we would love to hear what’s lifting your spirits during this time.
With this in mind we share the first of our new Creativity in Captivity series, where we consider how creating something, anything, however small – might help us recharge, reflect and connect with one another. Below, artists in various fields tell us how they’ve been coping with self-isolation, and share their tips for getting into a creative mindset.
