2016 / 2017 Projects

PSS Workshops


In 2016/17 the Bdc were delighted to again work with health and social care partners Person Shaped Support (PSS) to deliver a third programme of artist-led workshops, to demonstrate the benefits that craft can have on a person’s overall health and wellbeing.

Funded by P.H. Holt Foundation, workshop residencies took place between 1 November 2016 – 31 May 2017 and saw new local artists working with a range of PSS groups: Christine Toh at the Women’s Turnaround Centre; Caroline Gregson, Elizabeth Willow and Sally Anne Thompson at the Umbrella Centre; Simon Shaw at The Avenue, Belle Vale; and Gill Curry at the Leeson Centre.

For more information about the individual workshops and the PSS groups involved in the project, please follow the links at the bottom of the page.
