Community Project Workshops
9.30am - 12 noon
"Project Factory CIC and Ruth Ames-White are sowing the seeds to create a tree-mendous piece of craft-based artwork which will be made by the community for the community and will be publicly displayed somewhere in Wells.
We are supported by funding from Somerset Skills & Learning to offer 6 workshops for you to join us in making individual mosaic leaves which will become part of the installation. We are asking for a £5 donation to cover materials and £1 will go towards fundraising for Wells In Mosaic.
On this workshop you will learn how to design and layout the tiles for your leaf, cutting tiles, arranging them and setting them in place ready for Ruth to assemble the whole piece at a later date.
According to Craft Council UK: The ongoing surge in mental health problems can be attributed to myriad factors, but dwindling access to creativity, and the all important mind-to-hand connection, certainly plays a role. Craft can alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, depression, loneliness and even dementia."
