Creative Mentoring

More Information
Creative mentoring offers one-to-one sessions for members who cannot attend our community groups for a variety of reasons.   
This is an offshoot of the Inside Out Community programme, and was set up to overcome potential barriers some members may have in accessing our workshops. 
Over the course of ten weeks, an artist or other creative mentor will work with the member on a creative project of their choice in their own home, or other suitable venue.
