[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]There are a lot of creative residents, at homelessness scheme the Old Tea Warehouse, who have been asking for an arts and crafts club so that they can express themselves through art.
Staff agreed that this would be both therapeutic and a great chance for residents to get to know one another. Your funding paid for materials that will provide several weeks’ worth of painting, drawing and collaging.
Corren said: “it allows me to be creative and get my thoughts out on paper. It’s also good to talk to other people and socialise.”
For some it is a new form of expression, and for others it’s an opportunity to develop their current talents. Art-lover Tabitha said that the sessions “help me with my addiction.”
Jason added: “it helps me to unwind… I enjoy getting involved in something I like but wouldn’t do normally.”
Stephen summed it all up when he commented: “When I’m in the zone, time stands still.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
