Hard to believe, it is now a year since we started the Still Life art workshops, for those of us in Conwy who have been bereaved.
Twelve months of making art, making new friends, and a lot of good memories. The time has flown by.
If you are over 16, and have lost someone important, whether that person was a relative, friend or colleague – please join us.
Everyone taking part – including the group organiser and workshop artists – has a shared experience of how that feels.
This isn’t art therapy, and we aren’t counsellors, but it is a chance to leave difficult feelings at the door for the couple of hours and focus on something completely different. There is no charge – all sessions are free. And above all … you don’t have to be ‘good at art’ to take part.
Cruse bereavement counsellors usually take part in the art group each week, and wlll be available to talk privately, in a separate room .
We are ALWAYS open to ideas and suggestions. If there’s an artform you would like to try, please let us know!
We have an open door policy so feel free to drop in for ten minutes if you would like to see what’s going on, before commiting to a full session. Come at 3 o clock and we will make you a cup of tea when we stop for our break!!
We meet every Tuesday from 2pm – 4pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, on Rosehill Street, Conwy. Forthcoming sessions are:
