Community Projects - Creative Age and Forward Assist

Community Projects - Creative Age and Forward Assist

27 January – 30 April 2017

Creative Age

 The project ‘Creative Age” offers weekly sessions at National Glass Centre for people diagnosed with dementia and their partners or carers. Participants work with artists to explore different glass and ceramic techniques in a relaxed and supportive environment. Working with different artists throughout an eighteen-month project, participants have gained skills including glass fusing, engraving, sandblasting, stained glass, and ceramics.

 Creative Age is delivered in partnership with Equal Arts and is funded largely by Comic Relief and Arts Council England. If you would like to take part in the project please speak to a member of staff or email learning@sunderland.ac.uk.

 

Forward Assist

Forward Assist is a Veteran Support Charity providing advice, information, guidance, ‘life changing’ projects and opportunities to former servicemen and women who are experiencing difficulties in adjusting to a new life as a civilian.

National Glass Centre has worked with veterans from Forward Assist on a number of different projects over recent years. Having previously been introduced to a range of different glassmaking techniques, the group focussed on designing and making fused and slumped glass tableware using poppies as inspiration. In a later project as part of Dr Chris McHugh’s Fellowship with University of Sunderland, participants returned to the Centre and worked in ceramics. They created artwork inspired by personal items and their time in the forces.
