Home Comforts will enable us to work with and support care home residents and isolated individuals residing in Bolsover District by delivering a series of online art workshops.
Beginning in November and running into the New Year the project will enhance the health & wellbeing of those taking part by connecting people, building new or sustaining existing friendships and providing inclusive and stimulating activities. The project will also help to ensure that vulnerable people feel valued and part of their community.
Two artists, Miriam Robinson and Ruth Pigott have developed a programme of five workshops, all designed to be delivered remotely but also allowing for social interactions.
Spaces for the live art workshops have now been filled, but the pre-recorded workshops will be released each month so anyone can do them from home!
