Art, Craft and Design 

 

  

 

 

 

We  enjoy fantastic craft and design sessions, not only with sketching and painting, but also with wax, gems, foiling and pyrography (which is the art of decorating wood, leather and other materials with a pen-shaped, burning tool). These activities allow the expression of creativity, alongside forward planning, concentration and hand-eye coordination, all of which are skills we work together to support and develop. 

 

 

We are very well-resourced with good quality art and craft materials and tools, so our clients are welcome to get as creative as they wish. The list is endless!

 

 

All sorts of things have been created here, from greetings cards, artistic collages, beautiful decorations and even designs for 'Good Luck' cards sent to our London Marathon runners.

 

 

Our bright and spaciou s art room offers all of our clients, with support from volunteers/staff, the freedom to express themselves and create some fabulous pieces of artwork, which are often displayed around the Headway building. The mural shown in the photograph above was designed and created by our clients!

Headway Music Group rock the charity fundraiser!

 

An amazing night was had by all at the fundraising concert on Saturday 6th October, featuring facilitator Freyja, deputy manager Jonny, and the Headway Music Group, raising an incredible £405 EACH for both Headway East Northants and the Cransley Hospice!

 

The guys all performed  with others to raise funds for both Headway East Northants and the Cransley Hospice and the night was incredibly well-supported, with the venue packed to the rafters! 

 

Well done to all involved, particularly to Freyja and partner Chris, who worked so hard to create such a professional gig, and of course, our amazing Headway clients for conquering their nerves and performing two songs LIVE!
