Our Postal Projects are designed by our Art for Wellbeing team of freelance practitioners for adults looking for a creative way to enhance their wellbeing at home.
How it works
All you need to do is contact us and express interest! You may be on a waiting list as all of our projects are funding dependent.
We're currently taking expressions of interest from people who care for those living with dementia. If that's you, email or call using the information below.
Our Emotional Support Workers (ESW) and Art for Wellbeing coordinator will then have introduction call with you to introduce the project and our voices and we send out a pack with a sketchbook, information, materials and the first activity.
Over the following 8 weeks the ESW will call for a 15-minute catch up, they will help with as much as they can from signposting to motivation. Once the ESW has called they update the artist who sends out the next activity and corresponding materials with a personalised note.
We have different creative projects to choose from!
- Drawing - playful drawing techniques to get you started
- Painting - a range of different painting styles utilising acrylics
- Discovery - if you have some experience in art-making this project plays with lots of ideas and mediums.
