There is always something happening – whether it is art, writing (both creative and more practical), computing or board games. We have an Art Group, a Literary Forum and a Computer Group.
The weekly Wednesday Art Group is there for anyone who’d like to give it a go and find out how creative they can be! There are no set activities – it works like an open studio, ie you come in and get on with something that interests YOU.
So far people have done drawings, paintings, sewing, knitting, jewellery making, collage and badge making. Some people are interested in the Impressionists, others like Graffitti: we’ve got books on different types of art with art workers and volunteers who are willing to talk to you and help you do the kind of work you are interested in.
You can also sit in and see what the group’s like or look at one of our books before you make up your mind up about joining in. It’s a friendly group with chatting if you are feeling so inclined, but if you’d like to left alone and concentrate on your work, then we respect that too. There’s a wide range of materials for you to use free of charge.
