This show will reveal the positives to come from people’s experiences as they grow and develop from what has happened in their lives. Craft will be shown to have empowered makers at times of difficulty, offering meaning to their lives and benefits to their overall wellbeing.
Bluecoat Display Centre is a registered charity and for the past few years has been running a series of outreach workshops for local mental health groups. Talented local artists have been teaching group members different craft techniques, giving them unique and illuminating experiences. The exhibition reinforces the fact that mental health is at the centre of our work.
