Fresh Arts on ward project, RUH Bath, UK
A Creativity Works project in collaboration with No.1 Royal Crescent, The Holburne Museum & The American Museum
As part of the Fresh Arts@ project with Creativity Works, I led a series of print and weaving workshops on an acute mental health ward at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. The workshops aimed to facilitate creativity and inspire participants, creating connections between the group through the process of art-making.
The patients contributed to the creation of large artworks during the sessions, with a focus on print-making onto lengths of fabric and creating a large fabric weave. The fabric provided a blank canvas, for patients and staff to express themselves. The programme ran organically as different people participated in the project and the session was tailored to the needs of each person. All the stories expressed will come together in the large finished woven piece.
