I Heart Thursdays is back, hosted by the very wonderful Kitty O'Shea! Join us every month between now and August to meet the artists we're working with, have a bite to eat and a good old chat. First up it's artist Michelle Browne, who will give a preview of her board game 'World of Work' designed with young people in St Helens.
Thursday 27th February 6:00 pm — 8:30 pm
Heart of Glass
I Heart Thursdays is our regular St Helens free social get together to bring us all a little closer, it’s a chance for artist to meet audience, creatives to engage with communities. I Heart Thursdays is back for 2020 and we’ve asked local lass Kitty O’Shea to host the monthly get togethers between now and August.
You might have seen Kitty wandering around town with her knitting or you might have attended one of her Pick n’ Mix Scratch Night events. Kitty likes to brighten up the dismal dark days and nights with some pink sparkle and her homespun philosophy. We know that she will help to see us through the winter months and into the summer with a smile, so we hope you can join us.
For the first I Heart Thursday of the year, artist Michelle Browne will be talking to us about the ‘World of Work’, a board game that she has designed and created with young people in St Helens. Come along to meet Michelle, hear about how the board game was developed and listen to Kitty’s pondering on working life – we’ll also be setting up a board game cafe so we can have a play of the games that inspired Michelle and the young people while they created the game.
Free vegan soup and a roll will be available so if you are rushing straight from work, college, shopping (we don’t need to know the details) don’t worry about having your tea, come straight to us. We will have the kettle on!

A few words from Kitty
“I’m dead chuffed to be hosting these I Heart Thursday nights and I can’t wait to get going. If you are interested in all things creative or you just want to get out of the house and have a bit of a natter with some friendly folk then this is the night for you. Each month will feature a different artist that is currently working with Heart of Glass so you can get a chance to say hello and have a nosey what they are up to. There will also be a chance to meet some of the Heart of Glass team, play some records, put the world to rights and maybe even a prize or two. It’s going to be, to quote Cilla, a ‘lorra lorra fun’!”
