SOME OF THE THINGS WE'VE BEEN UP TO!
REVIVE We started running these workshops last year and have received further National Lottery Funding to continue this excellent work which educates in the arts, supports wellbeing and patient recovery and improves the hospital environment. e have contributed towards recovery and improvements in the ward environment. Our painted glass window has been installed on the Acute Stroke Unit and we will be installing our ceramic mural on Ward B6. Patients in the Dementia ward have also been enjoying Biodanza workshops with Olga Bastable.
SUTTON WOMEN'S CENTRE The SWC is a safe and supportive environment for women that is an invaluable resource for women who have been victims of abuse or who just need somewhere to learn English or self-help techniques. After consultation with the ladies of SWV, we have been helping them make ceramic tiles for creating a mural to enhance their building as well as enjoying wet felting workshops...learning felting skills that they can easily continue at home.
THE ROYAL MARSDEN SCHOOL ROOM Work here was started as part of The Fuchsia Project and now, thanks to the D'Oyly Carte Charitable Trust and the Royal Marsden Hospital we will continue running free arts workshops for the children on the unit.
