This is a list and further information about our weekly, ongoing Art Therapy, Art & Wellbeing or Gardening for Wellbeing groups. For short-term groups please check our News page.

Art in the Garden

This is an Art & Wellbeing group which allows you to explore a variety of art-making techniques in the relaxing environment of the Redcatch Community Garden. This group provides a sociable, supportive and creative experience for local people.

  • On Tuesdays, 9.30-11.30am

  • Materials are provided

  • Run by two qualified Art Therapists, Jenny and Kaya

  • You can explore the art materials and work on your own projects, or we can suggest approaches

  • Although this is not an art therapy group we make sure it is a safe, accessible space for everyone

  • Suitable for beginners and those with art experience

  • We work under the heated Canopy (safari tent) and go ahead in all weathers

 

This session is low-cost so that as much of the community can benefit as possible. The cost is £3 to £8 depending on what you feel you can afford. You can pay with cash in the group (please bring correct change) or by cash or card at Roots cafe. Revenue generated from the cafe and shop also helps to support this group.
