A brand new project funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
'The Welcome Cafe' offers fun, free, fortnightly creative supported sessions open to neurodiverse, disabled and older adults.
Last year, group members worked on a project alongside artists Ashok Mistry and Ami James to create their own digitally designed and handsewn, personalised weighted blankets, used to relieve anxiety and help to feel calm. Working towards an interactive exhibition entitled 'Snug', which the group continue to explore.
