Free creative workshop guide

28 May 2024

As part of the Shining a Light exhibition, we commissioned artist Alice Briggs to create an activity guide, enabling carers to lead creative workshops in their care homes.

The guide demonstrates how simple objects can be used to build connections between fellow residents and carers. It provides a step-by-step outline of the necessary materials, craft techniques, and ideas for adapting the workshop for less able residents. 

If you’d like a copy, you can download the digital version or email to request a printed copy.

Alice will be hosting a free online event to explain the guide by taking you through a craft workshop on 25 June. Find out more and join us!

Alice Briggs is an artist, arts educator and curator. Alice worked with Age Cymru on their flagship cARTrefu project as an artist in care homes for five years and is a Creative Agent for the Lead Creative Schools Arts Council Wales project.
