Our approach is informal and relaxed allowing service users to explore a wide variety of media and techniques finding what works best for them personally.
Our activities include: pottery, jewellery making, painting & drawing, collage and printing, needlecraft and fabric based activities.
The sessions take place in our modern creative arts rooms which use a variety of communication tools and visual structures and all staff are highly trained in nurturing the talents of each individual. We look to develop each service user through a variety of art techniques, group projects and many of our service users progress on to completing the ASDAN award in Art.
We have a Ceramics department with a potter’s wheel and large kiln, where service users are encouraged to explore a range of tactile activities with clay and glaze. Many of the fired products go on sale at craft fairs and always attract high praise for their quality and originality.
We believe that everyone can create art and we encourage participation from each service user and record their progress and independence, no matter what their ability level.
