On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August our client’s art work will be displayed and available to buy at Nettlebed Art & Craft Exhibition
Last year’s exhibition was well attended by local artists and so many craftspeople that they ran out of space. They had a display of art from inmates at HMP Huntercombe, sales of which went directly to Sue Ryder Care, and also a display from day care patients at Sue Ryder Care Nettlebed. Nettlebed School children also provided an art display of their watercolours.
Visitors bought £3500 worth of paintings and craft and they donated the profits to nine local charities.
Headway clients who attend the Day Centre in Henley take part in Art Therapy every Monday with the guidance of Helena, our Art Therapist.
“I am very happy to see that the art group is firmly established now. The Headway artists produce beautiful pictures every week and it is wonderful to see people developing their own unique style at their own pace. The work is always interesting and shows a great deal of skill.”
Helena introduces different subject matters and ideas each week for the clients to work on. Art Therapy can help in long term recovery from brain injury by improving patients’ mood and self-esteem.
The Nettlebed Art & Craft Exhibition is being held at:
Nettlebed Community School
Henley On Thames
Doors are open 12-18:00 on Saturday and 10-17:00 on Sunday.
