Groups and Workshops
|We run a variety of groups and workshops throughout the week, allowing our guests to meet up, relax, develop creativity, learn new skills and grow in confidence and self-esteem.
The Art Group has been meeting weekly for over a decade. It is run much like any other art studio. Members are encouraged to develop their own art practice and skills, whether they are highly skilled or new to art.
2009 saw the beginning of our Framing Workshop. Thanks to a grant from Help the Homeless, we were able to purchase the equipment necessary to get us started. Our participating guests are now extremely proficient framers. We are investigating ways of making the workshop financially sustainable, turning it into a social enterprise, and perhaps running community classes to enable our framers to pass on their skills.
We are currently looking to expand our workshops that we offer during the week. Please contact us if you able to donate your time to help develop a course and share your expertise or interests.
