Social Arts: How To Get Involved

SocialArts runs at Norden Farm on Monday mornings.

Each session runs from 10am – 1pm, and includes a 2 hour arts based workshop (and materials) and lunch in the Café Bar.

Specialised transport can be arranged for those who need it.

We have activity planned across 2017 and 2018, and the current term dates can be seen below:

Each term focusses on a different topic (previous topics have included, sculpture, drawing, printing and a series of taster workshops). 

Spaces on SocialArts are limited and participants are asked to commit to the full block of each term.


Participants

Kick start the week at Norden Farm with our friendly social group! 

The group is aimed at older people who are looking to try something new, meet new people and have a bit of fun! Our participants range from age 65 – 90.

Each week we are joined by our group leader Amelia, who will lead you through the workshop – offering tips and tricks, and uncovering your arty potential! (even if you don’t know it is there!)

Each term we are joined by a visiting professional artist or practitioner who will act as inspiration for the following weeks work. 

We start each session with a cup of tea and a chat before heading into the session – and finishes with a hearty lunch in the Café Bar, before departing. 

Fancy giving it a try? Give us a call, we would love to find out more about you and get your booked in! 01628 682563 / robyn.bunyan@nordenfarm.org


Community Groups

We welcome already established community groups to get in touch and get involved! We already work closely with Elizabeth House in Cookham, and WAM Get Involved.  

What can SocialArts offer your group members?

  • Providing participants with the opportunity to engage in a range of arts activities, with  support from visiting artists and group leaders.  
  • SocialArts is a place where participants can learn new skills, renew social networks and reconnect with the community. 

If you think that SocialArts sounds like something your community group or service users would like more information about, contact Robyn Bunyan at Norden Farm on robyn.bunyan@nordenfarm.org or call 01628 682563
