Loudwater is a perfect place for adults with learning disabilities and those that support them to learn creative skills, whilst relaxing and meeting new people. All studio staff are confident in supporting adults in a full range of different creative activities, whether it’s sewing, pottery or maybe some drawing, there’s lots to do at Loudwater. Listed below are the groups we currently have running and those that are upcoming for the future that you could join. If you have a group in mind that you’d like to bring along to one of the organised activities or would organise a regular slot just for you please get in touch.
Crazily Creative Mondays
Full Day £30 Half Day £15
Join our mixed abilities adults group for a full-day or half-day every Monday and we’ll help you to develop new skills whilst meeting new people and having lots of fun. The day is very much free-flow with everyone undertaking their own project, with occasional specialised days where we can all try out something new. Come for half a day or bring your lunch and spend the whole day with us; whatever you decide, we’ll ensure you get the best from your time in the Studio, whilst also ensuring that your support gets the opportunity for some fun too. To find out more and book a place please call us on (01584) 877272 or contact us.
We’re thrilled to announce that we have received some generous funding from Shropshire Housing Group to allow us to get new groups off the ground for adults with learning disabilities. The groups will be led by a Studio Technician to make goods using both textiles and ceramics which the group will then sell to help sustain their group. The focus will be very much on working together to develop not only creative but entrepreneurial skills, the group will make the decisions what to make, how many and where they could be sold. This is a very exciting opportunity to get involved in a social enterprise from the very beginning. Applications for members to join the group either as members or as a volunteer are now open, please give us a call to find out more and get involved.
