Flower Power

A group of Pelham Road clients have been getting crafty!

Led by an outside craft expert, Betty, clients have been creating origami flowers, with pipe cleaners used for stems.

As you can see, the final creations were bright and colourful! One client, Adrian, said it was great fun; he was really proud and pleased with his creation.

Out thanks to Betty for taking the session.

Sew far sew good

A group of our clients have been busy working on some fabulous handmade items at the Textile Workshop on Mansfield Road.

Over a six-week course they will learn skills such as sewing, knitting, pattern cutting, dress making, printing, art, felting and embroidery. Many of the items created during the course will, in time, go on sale at our shop, Spacecraft. An example of the work being done is a lovely bouquet of flowers made from pipe cleaners and buttons!

One of our support workers, Kelly, says “The course is a great way for clients to get creative and focus on creating some fabulous items. It’s also a perfect way to help the mindfulness of clients.”

We would especially like to thank Karen Taylor, the tutor taking the group every Thursday morning, for her time and obvious enthusiasm.
