Engaging in Arts and Crafts can be a creative way of expressing yourself whilst learning new skills.

You have the benefit of working with a diverse group of people, along with the opportunity to socialise and make friends and develop your communication skills.

Check out the social media to view lots of the creations from the art room.

We also have many exhibitions to showcase the arts and crafts created within the IPSUM Art Room.

​"It’s very good, friendly. I can connect with the other people in the group. Its managed differently to other services, there is the additional benefit that if you are having a bad day and need to talk to somebody you can on a 1-1 basis. The groups are smaller too and that works better for me because big groups make me anxious."
Gerry – Art room service user
​"It’s a chance to get together, get out and socialise, its friendly and welcoming. Brings up my confidence and makes me realise how talented I am. To work on my emotional base is a way to bring my wellbeing up. I feel that I need to work on my physical, mental and emotional wellbeing to be whole."
