Covid Recovery Arts & Craft Workshops 1 & 2


We received Cultural Recovery Funding through Arts Council Wales in November 2020 and June 2021 which enabled us to run 2 Covid Recovery Arts & Craft Workshop Programmes until September 2021.


These face-to-face and zoom sessions aimed to support people through the pandemic, give them a safe space to talk about how they were coping and provide a creative activity. The sessions had a profound effect on many participants, bringing joy, connection and company to many people who were struggling, together with a sense of achievement at having learnt a new skill or discovered something new about themselves in the creative process.


QUOTES from participants

“You are doing amazing work. And I really feel that the fact of making connections is what it's all about these days. The isolation is really crippling and crazy making. Things that bring us together are so important. You do this all with such flair & joy. I can't say enough how inspired I am by what you're doing out in the world”


“The groups were small, but they were not people I would usually spend time with (strangers), so it was really helpful in getting used to being back in the world. Also, being absorbed in art for a few hours helped you to forget COVID, briefly, which was a welcome respite.”


“My mental health has improved by taking time out just for myself and socialising whilst producing art and feeling a sense of achievement.”
