Home Art Workshop Packs for people with dementia and carers

Home Art Workshop Packs for people with dementia and carers

Due to the current Covid-19 health crisis we are now providing weekly Home Art Workshops, delivering packs of resources and art materials that enable people to engage in projects on their own or with their carer at home. Each simple activity is planned by artists and includes full instructions. We telephone each participant to support them with their projects and help with any guidance they may need. As part of the project we share their artwork online and with others involved to help build an ongoing sense of community and connection.

Through providing these art packs we aim to give those confined to their homes, the resources and confidence to explore making art work. Creativity is well known for its therapeutic qualities and this project is designed to help sustain wellbeing, self-confidence and connection at this challenging time. We want to to help people maintain a link to their community and an ongoing sense of purpose that comes from being part of a wider project.

If you think you or someone you know would benefit from receiving our free art packs please do get in touch!
