Are being run at The Redwoods Centre and Severn Fields Health Village in Shrewsbury and at The Place, Oakengates, Telford.
The Redwoods Centre for inpatients from 1.30 – 3.30pm on Mondays
Severn Fields Health Village (ground floor, art room) for service users in the Shrewsbury area from 10.30-12.30pm on Fridays
Oakengates, The Place in Telford for service users in the Telford area from 10.30 - 12.30 on Thursdays
The project is being funded by Big Lottery in partnership with Creative Inspiration Shropshire, Arts for Health (SSSFT) and Telford Cultural Art Team.
The aim is to offer our service users the facility of an art group whilst they are inpatients at the Redwoods Centre – and then to have access to an appropriate art group in the community when they are discharged. The groups are run by professional artists and a range of techniques are being explored using different materials and equipment.
Some projects might lead to exhibitions of artwork within Trust buildings or in partnership spaces / galleries.
