On Monday mornings we run a craft activity for adults with learning difficulties, which encourages the development of fine motor skills, colour recognition and social skills, and was recently mentioned in a national report, Museums and Spaces for Wellbeing, produced by the National Alliance for Museums, Health and Wellbeing.
Each week the participants will work on a particular craft project, which might be making papier-mache pumpkins, decorating plant pots or designing Christmas cards and throughout the years they’ll have lots of opportunities to try out different craft techniques. The sessions are led by Nikki Ritson and take place in the Museum’s dedicated education room. They cost £2 per person, support workers and carers are very welcome and can come for free, and run every Monday morning from 10.30 – 11.30. If you are interested in coming along then call us on 01225 751339 or email Nikki email@example.com.
