Craft of Caring Workshops

from 9th April 2019 for 6 weeks
Venues across Mid-Devon

Significant Seams, a social enterprise that uses textile and crafts to build community and support people, has scheduled free art workshops for carers across Mid-Devon starting from 9 April. 

The project will host 6-week series in Crediton, Tiverton and Cullompton. An additional  set of sessions will be held in conjunction with Art Raft in Moretonhampstead.


The sessions will be run with four artists who bring international and award winning credentials. Each series of sessions will engage participants in a  range of art making techniques - from fabric printing, to sculpting with cardboard, to stitching. The activities will be social and fun, and lead towards a collaborative creation the participants will help plan and construct with the artistic team which will debut in National Carers Week in mid-June.


How to get involved

The session organisers look forward to meeting Carers in a workshop. Dependents are also welcome to most groups. Interested carers can contact the Katherine Marsland, the Community Associate, on 077590421151 to get advice about the best series for them.

In Crediton there will be two sessions each week - Tuesdays 1-3pm, from 9 April at Crediton Art Centre, and Thursdays 11-1, from 11 April at Turning Tides Tea Room (Crediton Train station).

In Tiverton, there will also be two sessions each week  - Tuesdays 10-12 at Heathcote Community Centre from 10 April, and Fridays (excluding Good Friday) 1-3pm from 12 April at Sunningmead Community Centre.

Contact the project to discuss the possibility of joining the weekly session in Cullompton - which happens on Wednesday mornings - email catherine@significantseams.org.uk
