Make a small part of some very big art! Our colossal Creative Challenge took place on Saturday 10 June and we raised a fantastic total of £725.40.
Don't worry if you didn't get the chance to take part, as the exhibition of glass jewellery is available for sale until 17 July – all made by the Creative Age participants.
Participants taking part in the weekly Creative Age sessions have created an exciting range of handmade glass jewellery for sale.
All proceeds from the Creative Challenge will go directly to support the Creative Age project which provides weekly creative sessions for people living with dementia and their carers.
More about Creative Age
The project ‘Creative Age’ offers weekly sessions at National Glass Centre for people living 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.
In addition to the weekly activities, the group will also be fundraising to support the continuation of the weekly sessions once the funding period draws to a close. Our first event will take place on Saturday 10 June with our Creative Challenge family day. Take part in our colossal artwork, watch artists demonstrate different techniques, and have a look at the jewellery for sale – all made by the Creative Age participants. All proceeds go directly to the project.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
