The theme for our first week in January was Celebrating Winter, anticipating Spring.  A series of simple activities with professional artists were run, including dance and movement, weaving, ceramic tile making and poetry/stories with gentle making activities.  The gallery was set up to be welcoming, accessible and reflect the theme.

Older people from the local community participated over the week, including groups visiting from local care homes for a morning out. Tea, coffee and cake is an essential part of the sessions!

The theme for our week in March was 'Spring is Sprung!'  We made wonderful ceramic pots, shared to  poetry/stories, made bunting and glass tiles and Easter eggs.  The gallery was full of pink tissue paper blossom!
