Launching our first workshops for Carers
We are really proud to announce that we are launching our first set of workshops for Carers this August.
The workshops are funded by Stevenage Community Trust. The Trust was created in 1990 and is supported by local businesses and generous individuals to provide grants to local charities, community groups and families in crisis.
We will be using our grant to pilot a project of creative garden craft workshops for people who are caring for someone with Dementia at home. The idea behind these workshops has come from the carers we have worked with at The Red Shed Project, when you hear someone say that they feel like their ‘identity is disappearing’ you can’t help but want to do something.
These workshops will be running through the summer and we have connected with Carers in Herts, Open Art Box and some local craft enthusiasts to put together an interesting program of arts and crafts.
I feel sure I will be posting some amazing photographs of crafty creations very soon.
