Whether they want to express themselves on paper, in clay or on our purpose-built graffiti wall, our residents have plenty of opportunities to try out many different types of art form.
Under the gentle guidance of Claire, a support worker (and fully trained ceramicist) or Jean (who has a background in working with the creative arts for a variety of different groups), our residents can try out painting, drawing/sketching, ceramics and pottery as well as creative writing. They can do this as part of a group or on a 1:1 basis. Recently residents have also become involved with 'upcycling' donated items of furniture and selling these on the Crossways Enterprises Facebook page.
Our residents regularly have their work showcased, either in Time to Focus, our newsletter, or during our spring and summer fayres, when some even sell their work to supporters and/or the general public.
Recognising potential, encouraging independence, achieving self worth
