Your A-Z of creative activities

We know that millions of you already take part in some form of creative activity and we want to put together an A-Z of all them – from Acting to Zithering.

We’ve started a list but we’re looking for your help to fill in the gaps. Let us know what should be added by emailing getcreative@bbc.co.uk. And why don’t you show us your work by sharing it on social media websites using the hashtag #bbcgetcreative and we’ll show the best and most interesting on the site.

We’ll highlight an everyday artist of the week which we’ll put on the Get Creative homepage. Check out the FAQs for more information.

Over the year, together with you, we’ll build a comprehensive catalogue of activities. So, whether you’re into jewellery making, jazz or xylopyrography – that’s burning images onto wood – then get creative.
