Free arts workshops for carers and cared for – including those living with dementia – Torrington 100

We thought you might be interested in the following: 

In preparation for the jubilee weekend “Torrington 100” has set up some arts workshops that are especially suitable for carers and the cared for, including those living with and caring for those with dementia.

Artist Bridget Cordory has plenty of experience of working with people with varying degrees of memory loss and dementia and is very supportive. Fellow artist, Rose Hunter is local to Torrington and works with people with all levels of ability so no experience is necessary.

The art work created will be mounted and put in display on Thursday 2 June at The Plough where there will be an indoor event for all the people who have taken part in the workshops and their families. It will be a bit like a street party, with performances by young carers, anecdotes from adult carers, music and free refreshments.
