The aim of this free “art in the garden” workshop, facilitated by Jennifer Lauruol of Carpe Diem Gardens, was to enjoy using soft pastel colours to experiment with drawing people. By the end of the session those attending had explored several ways of using pastel colours and created one or more colourful images of people.
Funding to enable the workshop session was provided from a grant we have been awarded by The Peoples health Trust, using money raised by Healthable Community Interest Company via the health Lottery.
Among the feedback we received included:
"I have had a lovely morning at the workshop. Lovely people here"
"It is a calming, relaxing place. I made new friends"
"Felt comfortable, welcome and really enjoyed it"
"I feel confident enough to socialise more"
