Pete who runs our picture framing sessions describes what they’re about:
Picture framing sessions run every Friday afternoon and they are suitable for just about anyone. Many women frame pictures from art books and many bring along pictures of their own (such as pictures of their children or family).
Many women say that they find the sessions fun, relaxing and absorbing. As well as learning something new, they also get to take home something of their own that they can hang on the wall. It’s good for building up confidence and there’s usually a good crowd to have a chat with. If service users ever express a reluctance because they think wouldn’t be good at that sort of thing, please reassure them that they will be fine. No skills, expertise or aptitude are required. I was rubbish at woodwork at school (and I still am) but the tools and materials make it easy.
