CRAFTS for your GARDEN – exclusively for carers in Coventry who are registered with the Carers Trust Heart of England

a free 6-week art course for carers in Coventry who enjoy making things with wool and a wide range of different materials to create a garden sanctuary or for the home.   This course will be held at the Penny Collard Centre in Coventry.

Level of difficulty: Beginners and Intermediate

“Using wool in so many different ways was fantastic!  It was so absorbing and it really took my mind off all the negative things that are going on.  At the end of each session I had actually finished and accomplished beautiful objects that are now brightening up my home and garden.  I now have so many ideas for future projects.” (Participant Sept’21)
