Art, Craft and Design

We offer diverse and rewarding 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 – pictures of this are shown below). 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.

 

These sessions are also particularly popular for those of a quieter nature, and for those who find socialising and group-based activities challenging or overwhelming. 

We are very well-resourced with high quality art and craft materials and tools, so our clients are welcome to get as creative as they wish. All sorts of things are created, from greetings cards, portraits, mandalas, collages, seasonal decorations and even designs for ‘Good Luck’ cards sent to our London Marathon runners. Our clients also design our annual Christmas cards. We’ve also benefitted from a very generous donation of air-dry clay from our friends at Rushden Lakes Hobbycraft – 12kg to be precise!

 

Our bright and spaciou s art room offers any 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!
