For the last 2 weeks we have the times of our lives working with the good people from Ross Place Day Centre in Ardwick.
Initially asked to offer some advice about the Centre’s request to produce some mosaic artwork for their interior walls, the group headed down there to help and start them off, and boy did they go!!!
Wonderful to see the group members getting down to work with so many users and staff of the Centre, the staff were great and made us all feel so welcome.
Much laughter, great conversation and friendship sadly our secured small “Sharing Our Wellness Campaign Fund “means we leave them to complete the Artwork themselves, but we shall return when all is complete to celebrate with CAKE!

If you like CAKE then why not join us for the next six weeks at Gorton Library, we are offering opportunities to learn mosaic’s and printing techniques, you will produce some quality work ready to take home for Christmas.
Workshop session are every Monday starting – Monday the 4th November at Gorton Library, Room 2 , 2.15- 4.15pm , Weekly Costs £5 includes all tuition , refreshments and materials .
Project supported by the Duchy of Lancaster Fund

Our 2 staged community “tea and Cake “events at Gorton Community Centre and Gorton Library have been a great success, well attended.
Tea and cake was provided, with music in the background we even had a few people dancing!!!
Up to 90 people attended both events.
All the 44 participants we have engaged in this “l’ll put the kettle on “project was able to take away the artwork and give each piece a special place in their homes!!
“Great idea to bring local people together. Lovely to see something tangible for the participants to take home, treasure and reflect on the process” …Kala
