Restore was a project funded by Community Foundation North East, providing creative workshops to vulnerable and isolated people between March and December 2022.
We had two types of workshops: those for people with mental health challenges and those for people living with dementia. For this project, we partnered with Community Works in Thirsk, Mind Northallerton and Dementia Forward in York and Harrogate.
Some workshops were delivered at The Courthouse, whilst others took place at partner venues including local care homes.
Workshops included sessions in ceramics, printing, collage and painting. As the photo here demonstrates, attendees have loved taking part and are proud to celebrate their achievements!
