These workshops are for visually impaired children and families in Gloucestershire to explore and take part in our new outdoor participatory workshop at Westonbirt Arboretum Saturday 30th April 2022.   

Our workshops are unique and involve fun individual and group creative tasks working with our senses.  We will work with natural materials, descriptive imagery, drawing, writing, building and moving.  The workshops aim to develop our interconnectedness with ourselves, each other and the environment we are in.  

Our creative team involve visually impaired and sighted facilitators.  

A travel bursary is available to families who may need it to attend.
