– DISCOVERING CREATIVE SKILLS

Developing creative skills is a wonderful way to enhance ourselves…

A group has been meeting at Weston Artspace to explore, develop and enhance social and creative abilities.

Funded by North Somerset Community Learning, the sessions are designed to help people put into practice the creative skills they have.

This week, the session focus was; Scratch Art and the meditative process behind using creativity, was the perfect subject for a rainey Tuesday.

Using creativity as a tool too slow down can be extremely rewarding and is a healthy outlet away from our busy everyday lives that are moving fast.

Everyone who attended the session enjoyed the process, the topic and the safe space that is orchestrated by community artist; bev g star.

Some colourful pieces of work were created and will be exhibited to the public on March 22nd 2022 at Weston Artspace.

We are thankful to be part of this…

Stay colourful,

– U.R.I.C.A AT THE ARTSPACE

Weston Artpace and the URICA project.

Back in October 2021, a project at the Weston Artpsace called U.R.I.C.A has hosted.

Funded by Arts Council England, The Artspace teamed up with local occupational therapist; Sarah from Goodings Disability Services to help clients with limited abilities rehabilitate from long term illnesses and access the communities creative space.

URICA AT THE WESTON ARTSPACE

Sarah Gooding’s aims and goals are to produce evidence to doctors, local authorities and other organisations that incorporating creativity and art into the rehabilitation of people that are looking for ways to engage socially, mentally and physically is a great contribution to peoples health and wellbeing.

Local screen printer Zara Emily and community artist Bev g Star came together with Sarah to work alongside and host a series of creative workshops that enabled the clients who attended the sessions to explore mark making and screen printing onto fabric puzzle shaped pieces that all will be contributed to a bigger piece that will be on show in the window of the Weston Artspace and will be launched at an exhibit on Wednesday 19th January.

ACESSABLE ARTSPACE

The clients enjoyed the creative rehabilitation sessions and stated more sessions like these would benefit their health, wellbeing and they felt more confident about accessing the community space that is run by a group of volunteers.

The Artspace team are inviting everyone down to the space to see the work the clients produced and think this is a great opportunity to to get to know and expand their community.

We look forward to seeing you there….
