Sensory Workshops

The sensory workshops are directed to people who have sensory limitations focusing on those who have blind/partially sighted or deaf/hard of hearing.

The fundamental intentions of these workshops are to positively enhance the lives of people with sensory limitation, as often they are restricted to expressing themselves physically, emotionally and creatively. The workshops are a way of provide creative opportunities, whilst providing emotionally support and confidence building.

The workshops are a creative, fun and healing journey where you gain knowledge, skills and techniques in professional craft.  As the object are shaped and formed so will your confidence. Here you have the opportunity to create a desired sensory object that is personal to you. It may have sentimental or nostalgic values or sensory qualities.
