Our workshop programme focuses on looking at the full spectrum of emotional and physical wellbeing. During 2018 we have a number of workshops using photography to explore wellbeing, supported by Big Lottery Fund. We also have a number of workshops run by our artist in residence, Julia Mason, who is working with stroke survivors.
