Craft Workshops in Harrogate and Leeds
We run weekly craft workshop sessions for adults with disabilities and / or learning differences, providing a fun and caring environment in which to learn new craft skills, interact with others and work together towards a common task.
These creative workshops give differently-able people, particularly those that are not accessing any other services, the opportunity to learn how to make high quality crafts using recycled materials, with an added bonus that any income raised from selling the crafts benefits disabled people living in abject poverty in the developing world.
The sessions are run by Susie Hart (an artist, designer and qualified crafts instructor) with a team of trained volunteers. The sessions are free to attend and are open to adults aged 18-75, with physical and/or learning disabilities.
These sessions are held on:
Thursdays, 1pm-3.00pm, during term time, at St. Andrew's Church Hall, High Street, Starbeck, Harrogate, HG2 7JE .
Fridays, 10.00-12.00pm, during term time at St. Margaret's church Horsforth, Leeds, LS18 5LY.
Therapeutic craft sessions are also now being provided for patients at the NHS Lascelles Neurology Unit in Harrogate on Tuesday mornings, and on Oakdale Ward (for stroke patients) at Harrogate hospital.
