We have spaces available in our art therapy group for people living with dementia, Art Together. This runs on Thursdays 1-3pm. Please contact Kaya at email@example.com or 07858630507 if you or someone you care for is interested in coming along.
Our three new primary-school groups are up and running, funded by OVO. One is a shared gardening & outdoor art therapy session and two are indoor art therapy sessions supporting local children of different ages. We’re getting some great feedback from the children and the schools!
Jenny and George have launched an ‘ADHD Women’s Circle’ once a month on Wednesday evenings: two hours of relaxation, creativity and connection (with nature, ourselves and each other) with like-minded people. No diagnosis necessary. Go to TryBooking or email George at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
October saw an ‘Autumn’ theme in our drop-in community art group Art in the Garden, with some wonderful creative interpretations of what autumn means for different people. This lovely group is very established but always welcomes new members. It runs Tuesdays 9:30-11:30am.
We hosted an art & wellbeing workshop for a local Memory Café. It was so lovely to make connections with another enriching group for people living with dementia.
The wonderful Maggie from Thrive delivered a ‘Suicide first aid’ training for around 15 people: many Garden staff and volunteers as well as others from local partnership organisations. This was a very useful and thought-provoking morning supported by the RCG wellbeing team.
We ran an art & wellbeing workshop as part of the RCG Celebrating Age Festival which was well attended. We explored the festival's theme of 'celebrating wisdom whilst being playful and having fun' through the art materials. We asked the participants to chose a natural object which resonated with them and then make some art with it or about it.
