Unfortunately this project was not successful.

We will run ceramic sessions at Grange which has incredible health benefits for our elders, improving their quality of life in many ways.

Grange will run weekly ceramic sessions in Throckley with artist Annette Poulson, in collaboration with our colleagues from Curiosity Creative.  

Elders will create their own artwork using clay, supporting them to re-kindle and use new skills in a social and caring setting.  This way of working to give joy, a greater sense of purpose and increased confidence and self-esteem is something we all feel very passionate about.

Grange has pioneered the use of creative activities with artists involving the direct participation of all our elders, each week providing the chance to take part in creative sessions and to express themselves in new ways through the arts.  http://www.thegrangecentre.co.uk

Many of our elders experience multiple disadvantages relating to health, deprivation and isolation. These disadvantages are debilitating and act as barriers to participating in social and creative activities that protect good health and wellbeing. Our aim is that our person centered day care support and creative activities will help elders retain their independence and remain in their own homes for as long as possible.
