Craft, Mosaic & Textiles
We work alongside Enterprise19 by creating products to sell either on our website or at the many fayres and car boot sales we attend. The process includes researching what style of products are popular at the moment and that we feel we can reproduce to a high enough standard to sell. Current sessions include making bunting, sewing a motif onto material to create a picture and making fragranced candles in teacups. These creative sessions give our young adults a real sense of achievement.
Our group of talented young adults work together to gain skills to make wonderfully unique textile items - some to use, some purely for decoration! We work hard on using needles and sewing machine safely whilst having fun and letting our creative juices flow! Our projects change as new ideas come to us or we find inspiration out and about - but our focus is the same, enjoyment and learning.
Mosaic is a session that combines creativity and new skills to create functional and beautiful pieces of mosaic to use or display. We work on seasonal themes as well as interests of our young adults to create individual items or a range on the same theme. The young adults use a number of new skills and work as independently as possible to finish individual projects. We use many different tactile materials - wood, tiles, grout and glue for our work and research ideas as a group. As with all our sessions we have fun and emphasise communication and helping each other.
